Rutgers is home to many centers, initiatives, and departments dedicated to diversity and inclusion-related research. The Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs initiated the Diversity and Inclusion Research Symposium to support cross-disciplinary research collaborations and highlight the broad spectrum of diversity and inclusion related scholarship at Rutgers.   Last year’s research symposium had over 150 attendees, including faculty presenters, representing schools, and departments/institutes from across the university.  For more information on last year’s symposium themes, presenters, and research, please see the Rutgers Diversity and Inclusion Research Directory and the D&I Research Symposium Archive.

This year's symposium convened Rutgers scholars to share research, scholarship, and innovative research-based strategies that advance diversity and inclusion. For more information and see the event flyer here,  the symposium agenda here, and complete symposium program booklet here
