​The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is pleased to announce the 2023 PASSHE DEI Summit will be held November 8-10, 2023. For the first time, the DEI Summit will be a hybrid conference. In-person sessions will be held at Shippensburg University and virtual/hybrid sessions can be attended on Zoom.   

This year's theme is "The Power of Community: Uniting to Amplify Voices and Foster Well-Being.”  In centering the power and importance of community, the 2023 PASSHE DEI Summit aims to highlight the necessity and importance of uniting and working collectively to improve campus experiences and promote well-being for all. Working in community requires valuing both individuals and collectives; celebrating both our similarities and our differences; fostering both reflection and action.  

​The DEI Summit supports the State System’s five mission-driven DEI priorities, which were affirmed by the Board of Governors in April 2021: (1) Faculty, Staff, and Student Diversity; (2) Equitable Student Outcomes; (3) Inclusive Communities; (4) Curriculum Diversity; and (5) Enabling Infrastructure. This annual Summit reflects the State System's commitment to building and maintaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive space for faculty, staff, and students to thrive.  

We invite you to submit a proposal to share your research, best practices, or lead an interactive workshop that is related to learning and implementing DEI practices, activating organizational changes, and measuring the impact of this work on your campus or in your community. ​
