Organizers are looking for proposals for the Fall 2017 Culturally Responsive Campus Community (CRCC) Conference.

This semester’s conference, titled Bridging Divides, Becoming Allies, will be November 6-7, at the Bone Student Center. The CRCC is seeking presentations, papers, workshops, and panels that will equip faculty with knowledge and ideas to bring conversations into the classroom on the topic of oppression.

Submissions are due by October 3. Proposals can be submitted here.

CRCC members are seeking proposals on a wide range of topics, including ageism, LGBTQ issues, race, and the wage gap. More information about the conference can be found on the CRCC website.

The goal of the conference is to create spaces that work to bridge divides and challenge us all to become better allies. “This conference is aimed at continuing to honor the contributions and talents of our diverse community and further dismantle systems of oppression,” said CRCC member Stacey Hardin.

For information on proposals, contact or call 438-5993.

The mission of the Culturally Responsive Campus Community is to enlighten, educate, and ignite conversation and action around campus to create a more equitable and just campus environment for all students, faculty, and staff at Illinois State University.
