Greene County News

FAIRBORN — Wright State University will host the Diversity in the Multicultural Millennium Conference, themed “Breaking the Class Ceiling: Economic Inequality in the U.S.”

During this conference, slated to take place Thursday, Sept. 22 and Friday, Sept. 23, SOCHE will name two recipients of the annual Diversity and Inclusion Excellence Award: Nick Daily, assistant dean and assistant director of the Office of Black Student Affairs at the Claremont University Consortium (Former residence life coordinator and Title IX coordinator at Antioch College), and Ellen Novar, associate professor of marketing at Wilmington College.

The new Diversity and Inclusion Award was created to represent SOCHE and the Diversity and Inclusive Excellence Committee’s dedication to diversity. The awards are a way to recognize higher education students, faculty, staff and institutions that have created innovative strategies that promote the development of the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the needs of a multicultural society.

SOCHE is the collaborative infrastructure for higher education, helping colleges and universities transform their communities and economies through the education, employment, and engagement of more than 200,000 students in southwest Ohio. See more at: www.soche.org
