The Council on Postsecondary Education is planning an inaugural symposium, Higher E(D)quity Symposium, to be held on the University of Kentucky campus November 13-14, 2019. The purpose of the symposium is to bring together higher education administrators from across Kentucky to discuss and address current issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion and their impact on student success. Educators and administrators will have the opportunity to hear from leading experts in the field and be given information on how to increase a sense of belonging for students on college campuses. The overall goal is to positively impact student satisfaction, performance, and retention while preparing students to interact with individuals different from themselves in order to be competitive in todayfs global environment. Going forward, the symposium will be held annually, moving from one higher education campus within Kentucky to the next. Each year the focus of the symposium will address diversity, equity and inclusivity issues of the day. Attendees will include Presidents of the various institutions as well as administrators, educators, and those involved in the day-to-day work of promoting diversity, equity and inclusion on Kentucky's college campuses.
