Drawing on the spirit of the late Congressman John Lewis and the origins of academic support, the 2021 Association of Academic Support Educators Bi-Annual Diversity Conference will bring
together colleagues committed to the intersection of diversity, equity, inclusion, status, legal education, and academic support. In this collegial and collaborative environment, colleagues will have an opportunity to meet, reconnect, and share ideas surrounding pedagogy, scholarship, and professional growth.
The mission of the AASE Diversity Committee is to work collaboratively to advocate for and support diversity in law schools, to encourage academic support programs to engage in practices that promote and support diversity, to promote the recruitment and retention of diverse academic support professionals, and to provide resources that enhance knowledge and encourage understanding of diversity. The Committee honors ASP’s traditional role in supporting racial diversity in law schools and endorses a broad definition of diversity, that includes but is not limited to race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical or mental disability, and socio-economic status.
