SIG Leader(s)

To fully interact with our SIGs, become a CRLA Member

Purpose

Position is open: To increase awareness of and provide space for discussion and sharing on various topics related to multicultural issues and diversity in higher education and how these concerns encounter and influence learning and student success in college.

Members are also encouraged to bring to the forefront of SIG discussions those concerns that are most controversial and need space for focused deliberation within the CRLA through SIG activities, conference proposals and publication in CRLA journal.

Activities

Activities include a publication of a quarterly newsletter, the exchange of information between members, and sharing of ideas and concerns through networking on SIG email listserve; networking at the conference; and through SIG-sponsored conference activities, such as the SIG luncheon, sessions, and a roundtable.
