Join us for a day of professional development where we will explore how to engage underrepresented populations in education and how to promote learning through diverse experiences. This year’s symposium will feature Dr. Freeman A. Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, as our keynote speaker along with several of our USFSP faculty and staff colleagues sharing information and strategies about diversity in action.

President of University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) since 1992, Dr. Hrabowski is a consultant on science and math education to national agencies, universities, and school systems. He was named by President Obama to chair the President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African Americans. He also chaired the National Academies’ committee that produced the report, Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation: America’s Science and Technology Talent at the Crossroads (2011).

Named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by TIME (2012) and one of America’s Best Leaders by U.S. News & World Report (2008), he received TIAA-CREF’s Theodore M. Hesburgh Award for Leadership Excellence (2011), the Carnegie Corporation’s Academic Leadership Award (2011), and the Heinz Award (2012) for contributions to improving the “Human Condition.” UMBC has been recognized as a model for inclusive excellence by such publications as U.S. News, which the past eight years has recognized UMBC as a national leader in academic innovation and undergraduate teaching.
