Vulnerabilities and Thriving: Transformational Infrastructure in Higher Education

Across the nation, initiatives to transform campus climates to make them expressly more just, inclusive, welcoming and supportive are unfolding. Deeply diverse communities require these changes, however the work is not simple and can include strong conflicts of values, priorities and method. Campus leaders in religion and spirituality inform, instigate and sustain this work with critical perspective and knowledge. ACURA's November conference will explore our best practices and strategies for navigating and strengthening inclusive campus infrastructure with intelligence and compassion.
