Abstract or Summary
  • College campuses are becoming more diverse now than ever before. Campuses, however, are not as prepared as they should be for the new students that are arriving. Changes need to be made to status quo processes and procedures, event planning, and classroom education in order to best serve current students. In order for changes to happen, professionals need to participate in diversity related professional development to examine their own biases and assumptions, to learn more about people different from themselves, and to become equipped with tools that will enable a more inclusive campus climate. A mixed methods study was utilized to participants of a single-campus-based diversity summit to capture participants' learning and perceived tools and knowledge with which to return to campus. Findings suggest that there needs to be a community in which participants can grow through relationships, both individually and as a collective; participants of the summit had personal growth of knowledge and understanding in diverse areas, and participants desired to create change in departments, organizations, and in the campus at large.
