7th Annual SUNY Pride Conference, Oct. 18-19, 2019, SUNY Oneonta; Proposals due Sept. 10

The SUNY Pride Conference Committee cordially invites students, community members, resource professionals, junior and senior faculty, and administrators to submit proposals for our upcoming conference theme: Celebrating Our Histories, Envisioning Our Futures. 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn riots that many recognize as the linchpin event that fundamentally changed the course of history for LGBTQIA+ people both here in the U.S. and around the world. For this year’s SUNY Pride Conference, we encourage participants to reflect on the ways that our histories—and herstories—need to be celebrated and continually uncovered from hidden corners of sociocultural days past as one way of embracing our individual and collective journeys. In doing so, we also encourage participants to consider envisioning a future that none of us are guaranteed—futures that challenge us all to do better by our LGBTQIA+ ancestors, LGBTQIA+ siblings, our current selves, and our future selves.

SUNY Pride Learning Outcomes:

Conference participants will be able to:

  • Identify multiple aspects of diversity, including the ongoing development of identity and creating an inclusive community.
  • Explore and analyze current trends and issues that LGBTQIA+ college students face.
  • Create a network of student leaders and professionals.
  • Explore impactful approaches to diversity, inclusion, and wellness through historical and/or future-oriented lenses.
Call for Presentation Proposals
