CEAD Conference 2024

Please join us as we celebrate our 13th annual Celebrate, Educate, & Appreciate Diversity (CEAD) Conference!

The CEAD Conference offers diversity training and education for students and serves the University’s mission to provide programming that develops them to “lead responsible and reflective action in a diverse and interconnected world.”

Students participating in the CEAD Conference gain a greater awareness and understanding of power, privilege, biases, and stereotypes, as well as gain a broader understanding of differences in groups, backgrounds, cultures, practices, and worldviews through meaningful dialogue.

This year’s CEAD Conference is brought to you by the Student Council for Multicultural Affairs, Diversity Equity, Inclusion & Belonging. THANK YOU for your continued support!
