Higher education across the globe is being called upon to play a transformational role in equity, diversity, and inclusion in the 21st century. Against a backdrop of bias and violence towards racial and ethnic groups, a global pandemic, economic downturns, and climate challenges, many ask: What is the role of higher education with addressing these challenges? 

This conference will provide an opportunity to explore some of these key challenges, opportunities and resolutions of our times. Coventry University and NADOHE are bringing together higher education leaders, researchers, staff, faculty, and students from across the globe for this inaugural conference to learn and exchange ideas, approaches, and best practices.

A detailed schedule highlighting keynotes, concurrent sessions, workshops, and other programming will be available in the near future.
