University of Maryland's OHRP Hosts Second Practical Conference for Diversity Professionals
I received an announcement on Wednesday about the second year of an exciting equity and diversity initiative of the Office of Human Relations Programs (OHRP) at the University of Maryland, College Park. The initiative is called the "Institute on Implementation and Institutionalization" or, for short, the I3. The I3 will be held July 7-11, 2004 in Washington, D.C. For more information, contact Dr. Christine Clark, Executive Director, Office of Human Relations Programs, at 301.405.2841 or .
Building on OHRP's collaborative Ford Foundation funded Diversity Blueprint project with the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U), the I3 offers PRACTICAL strategies for professionals in higher education in the development and realization of a broad-based and campus-wide equity and diversity agenda. Additionally, the I3 will feature two "Hot Topics:"
(1) Special Segments on Selective Admissions in Higher Education one year after the Supreme Court decision; and (2) Hate Crime Response Protocols on Campus.
