The Diversity Institute is an annual campus wide event for students, faculty, and staff, developed to explore issues related to diversity and multiculturalism. The format and specific topics vary by year. The goals of the institute include increasing the visibility of CAPS services on campus, raising awareness around diversity, promoting inter-cultural contact, and increasing understanding of diversity. It is also an excellent opportunity for leadership and diversity training for students and the campus community. The CAPS Multicultural Coordinator is responsible for planning and coordinating this event.
This year’s theme is “Celebrating the DiverCITY of the UH Community” and honors UH’s distinction of being the second most diverse public research University in the nation. It will include presentations on diverse topics, a luncheon, a diversity resource fair, and will feature:
- Dr. Patrick Leung, Professor of Social Work at the University of Houston as the Keynote Speaker
- Dr. Luis Torres, Professor of Social Work at the University of Houston
- Mr. Michael Crook and Ms. Jamie Gonzales, UH Center for Diversity and Inclusion staff
- UH Student and CAPS interns panel
Registration is free and open to the UH and Houston community. CEUs are available to licensed psychologists and licensed professional counselors. Unfortunately, we are not a registered provider of Social Work CEUS at this time.
