BEYOND Diversity: A Conversation about Authentic Inclusion in Higher Education

As part of Black History Month at FDU, join us for Beyond Diversity: A Conversation about Authentic Inclusion in Higher Education featuring keynote speaker Lawrence Alexander.

WHERE: Orangerie in the Monninger Center at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Florham Campus at 285 Madison Ave., Madison, N.J. 07940
