2nd Annual CSU Conference on Community Based Teaching and Research: Diversity in California


The conference featured half-day workshops by invited presenters; intermittent open forums, determined by conference registrants; and panel discussion sessions, for which we issued a general call for proposals.

On the first day of the conference (Fri, Feb 23, afternoon), there were concurrent half-day workshops on the following topics: (i) supporting the development of ethnically diverse students, (ii) developing research partnerships: challenges and benefits, (iii) developing multicultural competencies in working with diverse communities, and (iv) developing advocacy skills that build upon research efforts.

Panel Discussion Sessions
On the second day (Sat, Feb 24), the conference was organized around Panel Discussion Sessions (.doc). Sessions were scheduled either for 60 minutes with 3 panelists or for 75 minutes with 4 panelists. Each panelist presented for 15 minutes leaving sufficient time for group discussion to follow.

Open Forums
Open forums provided an opportunity for new researchers and practitioners to meet and discuss topics in a less formal setting. These forums also provided an opportunity for faculty within the same discipline to gather. Forum topics were participant driven and determined by reviewing the Request for Forum entries on the Conference Registration site.
