woman speaking on stage

Daryl Smith, a professor of education and psychology at the Claremont Graduate University and author of Diversity’s Promise for Higher Education: Making it Work, addresses the audience at the University’s second annual diversity conference, “Why Diversity.” Throughout the day, conference participants attended a variety of presentations on campus climate and culture, the graduate student experience, the impact of support staff on student life, diversity in learning styles, and underrepresented minorities in business, among other topics. “There’s no doubt we’ve made progress,” Smith said about diversity in higher education. “But it is also now clear that our future will rest on finishing the business of our history.” Watch Smith’s keynote online at www.youtube.com/UniversityRochester.
