A Rich Mix

News & Events

The Office of Institutional Diversity hosted “Leading for Change: Diversity Practices in Higher Education”, a conference that brought together more than 200 educators from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire to discuss best practices and share ideas on a wide-range of topics.

The conference focused on BSU’s diversity-oriented policies and allowed participants the chance to examine their own institutional diversity practices. The ultimate goal of the two-day conference was for each educator to contribute to the creation of a campus diversity action plan.

Male Call

News & Events

“Locker Room,” a sculpture by Nathan Vincent, will be exhibited at the Anderson Gallery from Sept. 3 through Oct. 10. The installation depicts a men’s locker room and is created through knitting and crocheting.

“The ‘Locker Room’ portrays ideas of gender and gender permission,” Mr. Vincent said, adding that it is a place where males feel both comfort and vulnerability. Mixing the materials, considered by most to be feminine, with the creation of a place that is most often viewed as highly masculine, the artist questions traditional notions of gender.

Dr. Karim Ismaili is the new dean of the College of Graduate Studies.
 
The London native last served as associate dean for graduate affairs and research in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Kennesaw State University, and said there were several reasons that brought him to BSU.
