The University-wide Annual Research Conference aims to promote diversity and inclusion through the advancement of scholarship and showcasing scholarly activity.  Potential faculty members are encouraged to attend the conference as we focus on Race in research and scholarship. Conversations on Race aims to encourage active dialogue within the academic community on the topic of race.

The conference objectives: (1) spark and share meaningful dialogue within the UR academic community concerning issues on race; (2) inform pedagogy for sustainable learning environments relating to race and diversity; and (3) create a space for scholarly exchange at the University to ask questions, get assistance and seek collaborative opportunities around race and diversity.
