The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), in partnership with Western Kentucky University, is pleased to host the 2021 Higher EDquity Symposium November 15-16, 2021.
Converging at the intersection of higher education and equity, the Higher EDquity Symposium provides a forum for faculty, staff, students, and administrators in higher education to collaborate on issues relating to diversity, equity and inclusion.
This year’s theme is "Cultivating Culturally Competent Campuses". Focusing on the A4 Model for Cultural Competence, sessions will include discussions of various components for creating a culturally competent environment for faculty, staff, and students; minimum competencies for graduating culturally competent students prepared to enter the workforce; and other emerging topics relevant to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
CPE invites session proposals that will work for either in-person or virtual presentations that consider:
