Diversity Dialogues

Diversity Dialogues are a series of discussions facilitated by faculty and staff. Through thoughtful discussion of significant themes, Diversity Dialogue provides a venue in which students can participate in a free exchange of ideas, become involved and feel inclusion into the CSUF community, and recognize the unique concerns of our student body.

The Missing Voice: Asian Americans in Leadership

According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) professors hold more full-time, tenured faculty positions than any other racial-minority group. However, only 1.5% of college and university presidents are AAPIs (American Council on Education, 2013). In American politics, less than 15 AAPIs currently hold positions in Congress. This session looks at factors that prevent Asian Americans from holding leadership positions.
Date: Tuesday, November 12, 1:00pm-2:30pm
Location: UH 210B • Maximum Seating: 20

Please note:

- It’s our policy to start and end discussions on time. Arriving late creates disruptions for the participants. This affects the quality of learning and the comfort level of the group, which in turn, inhibits discussions and prevents us from accomplish our learning objectives.
