Student Diversity & Leadership Conference

About The Conference:

The SUNY Oneonta Student Diversity & Leadership Conference is an event designed for individuals from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to interact with student, administrator, and faculty presenters and exchange information to enhance multicultural comprehension, self-awareness, and leadership skills. Participants applied the acquired skills, tools, and insight to advance their personal development and be effective leaders both on campus and in the surrounding communities.

The 2024 Conference was held on Saturday March 23rd, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in SUNY Oneonta's Center for Racial Justice & Inclusive Excellence. For the 13th year, the SUNY Oneonta Office of Equity and Inclusion was happy to host the Student Diversity Leadership Conference. The 2024 conference considered the following theme:

What Unites Us

In a world that can appear increasingly hostile and divisive, this conference looked to bring together a series of panels, talks, roundtables, artistic expressions, posters, and workshops that consider the concepts of solidarity, equity, and justice in spaces that range from the local to the national and the global. We looked at how we view and interact with leaders in our world, schools, and communities, and how we can bring a more equitable environment to all.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to Chelsea McCracken, Interim Director of the Center for Racial Justice & Inclusive Excellence, at Chelsea.Mccracken@oneonta.edu.
