Panel discussion to continue Convocation's focus on diversity
Tuesday, September 24, 2013

A panel discussion exploring “The Value of Diversity,” featuring three members of the SUNY Fredonia community, will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 3:30 p.m. in Room 103B of the Williams Center to complement to the prior week’s Convocation keynote address by acclaimed African American commentator/writer Dr. Michael Eric Dyson.

Each member of the panel – Dr. Bill Boerner, the campus’ new chief diversity officer; Dr. Neil Feit, philosophy professor; and Dr. Emily Straus, history professor – will also present a separate talk. Boerner will address, “Becoming a Responsible 21st Century Citizen,” Feit will speak to, “Some Questions on the Value of Diversity in Academia,” and Straus will reflect on, “A Case for Diversity: Lessons from the Past.”

The event is free and open to the public.
