Illinois Summit on Diversity in Psychological Science
March 26-28, 2018
The Illinois Summit on Diversity in Psychological Science is intended to bring together nationally recognized and emergent psychological scientists whose work focuses on issues relevant to the science of diversity, broadly defined. The overarching aim of this Summit is to set a new agenda for research in psychological science that will transform the way we think about diversity and its context in the academy and in society more broadly.
Specific goals are 1) to provide a forum for psychologists and other social scientists to review, refine, and disseminate their knowledge of diversity science; 2) to cross-pollinate ideas, form new collaborations, and inspire other researchers to integrate diversity-related issues, questions, and methodolgies into their own scholarship; and 3) to identify and promote new applications for relevant findings from psychological science in a variety of institutional spaces.It is also an opportunity to celebrate those who have been engaged in diversity-related scholarship and make their work more visible and accessible, both to other scholars and to the broader society in which we live and work.
Registration begins on November 13, 2017. Abstract submissions for the poster session closes on January 15, 2018. Go to: http:conferences.illinois.edu/diversitysummit/ for more information.

Daytime Flashlight Vigil Against Acts of Intolerance
May 5, 2016, Psychology Atrium
The Diversity Committee with the support from Department leadership and administration hosted this event. There have been multiple incidents of intolerance on campus recently: swastikas, the noose, anti-immigrant chalking, white student union website, and offensive party costumes.
In order to show solidarity with those directly targeted by these actions;
In order to express our strong belief that acts of intolerance and structural violence deeply affect and hurt all of us;
In order to end the semester on a note of witnessing and honoring inclusivity.
Bring your flashlights and phones to light up the atrium.

Beginning with the freight elevator, each elevator will be out of service for three months. To get quickly from one floor to another, and improve your fitness, we will encourage the use of the stairs. The repainting of the northeast stairwell has been completed, and the painter is starting on the southwest stairwell.
