Conversations of Understanding

Conversations of Understanding is an event that is becoming an ongoing fixture across the SIU System and on our individual campuses. It provides a series of exchanges where students, alumni, faculty, staff and the broader SIU communities can share their experiences and thoughts on a variety of themes related to diversity, inclusion and equity. We want to be a model for others in higher education and be recognized as a leader for our work in fostering understanding of relevant contemporary issues.
