Registration is now open for this year's hybrid PASSHE DEI Summit, November 8-10. This year's theme is "The Power of Community: Uniting to Amplify Voices and Foster Well-Being". The Summit is free to attend for all PASSHE students, staff and faculty, whether attending in person at Shippensburg University or virtually. Meals will be covered during the summit. The only cost to factor in would be reserving hotel rooms if planning to attend in person. More information on hotel rooms can be found when registering. Visit the PASSHE website here for further details and to register. The Call for Proposals can also be found on the website. Proposals are due Thursday, Sept. 7. We encourage everyone to attend sessions that you can. More information on specific sessions and keynote speakers to come in the following months. It is a great professional development opportunity to learn more about DEI and what other PASSHE schools are successfully doing.
