Multicultural Education and Culturally Responsive Teaching

LID Conference

UConn Leadership in Diversity would like to invite you to our Seventh Annual Multicultural Education and Culturally Responsive Teaching Conference!

This year’s theme, "The Fight for Truth: Bringing Boldness to Education," is based on the need to challenge the current norms in the education system. For too long, our students, specifically our Black, Indigenous, and students of color, have been neglected, oppressed, and underserved. The main goal of this conference is to address the barriers these students face while providing educators, administrators, and professionals resources to fight for truth through action, dialogue, and love.

This is a conference for professionals in the field of education, current students in teacher preparation programs, and those interested in the field of education. The conference will open with remarks from our keynote speaker and attendees will have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions on a variety of topics related to multicultural education and culturally responsive pedagogy. 

This conference will be held in-person on Saturday, April 23, 2022. More information about the conference, as well as registration information, can be found at the conference website.

We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces, engaging in this work, and learning from each other. Hope to see you in April!
