The demographics of society are rapidly changing, and inclusion and social justice are central to these changes. The keynote will focus on the broader concepts and actions that allow us to move from being culturally aware to culturally effective, so we begin to understand the role our individual identities play in building relationships with students. We will explore national trends and what they mean to Buffalo State for creating an inclusive campus environment.
