Closing the Gap: Strategies to Address Racial Inequity and Health Disparities on Campus

December 8-9, 2020 (tentative date)

Deadline for Submissions is September 14, 2020

As our nation continues to struggle with racial inequity and campuses work to ensure the health and mental health needs of students of color are met, this summit seeks to provide practical strategies and guidance on how universities can effectively identify gaps and design programs to achieve racial parity. Using a case-study methodology, the summit will also explore real-life examples of innovative programs currently in use on campuses and will explore how campuses measure progress. 

We’re specifically looking for submissions that address the following:

  1. Strategies for identifying campus needs for racial inequity and health disparities
  2. Prioritizing focus areas
  3. Strategies to address racial inequity and health disparities on campus
  4. Methodologies and evaluations that can measure progress in closing gaps
  5. Frameworks and tools that can assist campus efforts
