Call for Proposals
The Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute Research Symposium “One Mission. One Voice.”
FDPRI invites proposals for the Research Symposium on July 12-13, 2020. The purpose of the one-day pre-convening is to facilitate the delivery of research, knowledge and best practices from academics and experts in higher education. Specifically, we want to highlight the voices of HBCU scholars and advocates. This year’s theme for HBCU Converge is “One Mission. One Voice.” Our theme illuminates the commonalities and united purpose of HBCUs. It also highlights how different functional areas across an institution work toward the same goal of higher education access and the generational success of its students. We encourage proposals which present the following sub-focus:
- cross-institutional/organizational collaboration
- workforce intersections
- issues of marginalization and inclusion with deep considerations of how representation and hierarchies of privilege (e.g., race, social class, ability, assigned sex, gender identity and expression, sexuality, religion
