Event Notice: Diversity Summit 2022

Due to an unforeseen personal emergency, Dr. Anneliese Singh is unable to attend the Diversity Summit scheduled for Friday, February 11th. 

The College of Education School of Teaching & Learning, College of Criminal Justice, College of Health Sciences, and the SHSU Graduate & Undergraduate Instructor Academy,  are now working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation. We are devastated by the news and hope you understand our decision to postpone the event. 

We are exploring options to reschedule the Racial Healing workshop, keynote, luncheon, and book signing.  We will be in touch with all registered participants as soon as possible.

We appreciate your support and value of this collaborative effort. Please direct questions or comments to Dr. Benita Brooks or NuNicka Epps
