The University community is invited to come together for Pacific's 2013 Diversity Retreat featuring keynote speaker Steve Korr from the International Institute for Restorative Practices (www.iirp.edu). After a two-year hiatus, the University Diversity Committee and cosponsors have organized a day packed with practical application and information. The full-day event includes series of practical workshops and discussion sessions that provide a forum to engage in dialogue that will not only inform how we advance diversity and inclusion but also how we pursue the related goals of Pacific2020.

Sessions run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Grace Covell Hall. All members of the Pacific community are encouraged to attend any or all sessions as their schedule permits.

Come and find out about diversity at Pacific - how we define it and what initiatives are currently happening at Pacific, learn about opportunities to get involved and make a difference, as well as learn about resources and strategies for making the classroom and the entire campus more inclusive.

Visit the event page at Calendar.Pacific.edu for a detailed list of sessions, including incorporating multicultural theory and practice into the curriculum, safe zone program, understanding social justice, and making Pacific a more welcoming and inclusive place.
