The theme of this year’s convention is “Equity as a Human Right: The Evolution from Equality to Equity.”

Participants will engage in workshops, panels and keynote addresses, featuring CeCe McDonald, Michael Hughes and TEACH Alliance.

This event is a part of WSU’s 2015-16 University Theme, Equity as a Human Right: Building Inclusive Community.

The 2015-16 University Theme, Equity as a Human Right: Building Inclusive Community, is about upholding people’s rights, valuing diversity, challenging intolerance, and making institutional change around issues of social justice. For WSU and its communities, partnering around a university theme has proven to be an effective strategy for bringing faculty, staff, students, and community members to the engagement table. The year-long focus will enable students, faculty, staff, and members of the wider Winona and Rochester communities to explore the intersections of identities, cultures, and abilities.
