Race, Culture, and Criminal Justice throughout the Lifespan

Each year the Institute for the Study and Promotion of Race and Culture (ISPRC) addresses a racial or cultural issue that could benefit from a pragmatic, scholarly, or grassroots focus through its Diversity Challenge conference.  The theme of Diversity Challenge 2017 is Race, Culture, and Criminal Justice throughout the Lifespan.  The two-day conference includes panel discussions, symposia, workshops, structured discussions, poster sessions and individual presentations by invited experts in education, administration, research, mental health, and community activism.

Diversity Challenge Format

Our two-day program offers eight 90-minute blocks of various presentations plus two Poster/Networking Luncheon sessions.  The conference structure is as follows:

    Each Day - 

        Morning Concurrent Sessions

        Invited Panel

        Poster Session / Networking Luncheon

        Afternoon Concurrent Sessions

        Invited Panel

We conclude our Saturday program with a complimentary catered networking reception / celebration to share food, entertainment, and conversation.   We invite you to be a part of this year's Diversity Challenge by registering for our October 13-14, 2017 conference.   We encourage you to take a Sneak Peak at this year's presentation offerings.  We will post our presentation schedule once it is finalized.
