Rutgers' annual academic research symposium, “Scholarship, Research, and Best Practices in Diversity & Inclusion: Exploring Current Findings and Pursuing New Pathways.”  The objective of the symposium is to provide a venue for researchers to present findings of studies and increase awareness of new approaches in research, emerging methods, and innovative strategies in diversity and inclusion.  The symposium provides an important vehicle for the exchange of ideas and highlights the scholarly research of our faculty, graduate students, and associates from all campus locations.

We are honored to have as our morning keynote speaker, Jack Tchen, newly appointed Inaugural Clement A. Price Chair in Public History and the Humanities, and Director of the Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience.  He is a renowned scholar, historian, curator, and cultural organizer.  He co-founded the Museum of Chinese in America, where he continues to serve as senior historian, and has been building research collections of Asians in the Americas for more than three decades.  

We are equally proud to have as our afternoon speaker, Peter Guarnaccia, Professor, Culture and Health, Department of Human Ecology, SEBS and Investigator at the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research, Rutgers—New Brunswick.  He is a nationally recognized scholar whose research focuses on the adaptation and adjustment processes of immigrant students to the U.S. enabling them in attaining a college education.
