This year's theme! Exploring the Nexus of Change in Diversity, Education, Leadership and Organizational Change

The year 2020 was full of unprecedented events, and as we move into 2021, there is much inquiry around what will change, what has been inspired to change, and where the future is heading. This year's conference explores the potentials of research, addressing  the compelling societal shifts experienced last year and the impact and prospects moving forward. Within this, the exploration and inquiry regarding where future paths will take us as a society  as it relates to diversity and inclusion, education and technology, as well as business and leadership, has become imperative. As in previous years, the RSE-Research and Scholarship Enterprise and the College of Doctoral Studies seek to enlighten communities through the efforts of a research lens that amplifies practice-based potentials in applyication of theory to real-time issues.
