Since 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 to discuss issues central to educating and empowering leaders and emerging leaders in higher education and the workplace.

 We’re excited to announce our 2015 Host Institution is Ramapo College! 

Our conference will be held on November 6th, and will explore the most pressing diversity issues of right now. 

Exhibitor tables and sponsorships are available. For information contact

The  2013 Conference was hosted by Montclair State University and the theme focused on access to technology, the digital divide, and preparing students for success in a global world.
