Every person has a story—a set of beliefs, life experiences, values, struggles, victories—that make him or her unique. Some people are easy to identify with and relate to, while getting to know others may take a little more effort and understanding. And that’s OK—as long as we're all trying. During this interactive session, participants will use inspiring videos and portraits from the CUPA-HR Creating Inclusive Communities project to discuss current campus climate challenges and how these challenges impact the ability to recruit and retain key talent. Participants will also work together to create strategies to help create a more diverse, inclusive campus community.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify campus climate challenges.
  • Discover strategies for creating an inclusive campus culture.
  • Enhance your institution’s recruitment efforts and talent pipeline.
