Diversity Through the Disciplines

  • photo from the 2016 Diversity Through the Disciplines Symposium

Each spring, IDEA proudly hosts presentations from past Multicultural Award Recipients.* These symposia showcase the research they conducted through this grant.

In 2018, we introduced Ignite Talks, a rapid and engaging style of presentation consisting primarily of image slides to tell the story. Following the presentations, the audience joins the presenters for a deeper conversation about the research, over lunch.
