6th Biennial Diversity Conference

TBR 6TH BIENNIAL DIVERSITY CONFERENCE

Thank you to all of the campuses and community partners that attended the Tennessee Board of Regents' 6th Biennial Diversity Conference. Through this conference campus professionals had the opportunity to hear about diversity best practices and lessons learned regarding student success, and to build networks throughout the system. These practices are critical to the system's ability to recruit, retain and graduate traditionally underrepresented and other targeted groups of students at our institutions. We plan to provide more programs related to increasing student success and completion in the near future. 

Presentation materials and other related conference information are included below.
