Diversity Issues in Higher Education captivated audienceSince 2000, we have been proud to sponsor the Annual Statewide Conference on Diversity Issues in Higher Education. Each year we partner with a New Jersey college or university to host this conference. Our conference brings together educators, students, business leaders, and community members together to discuss issues central to educating and empowering leaders and emerging leaders in higher education and the workplace.
