Kent State University, Miami University and Bowling Green State University have joined forces to form a collaborative conference: Reimagining the Academy: Building Communities for Access and Transformational Change. Previously, each university held an annual conference on topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. This new alliance will allow the universities to come together for one conference that will share expertise and leverage their strengths. The conference will offer in-person (at Kent State University) and virtual engagement opportunities. Registration will be free to faculty, staff and students at each of the collaborating institutions.
