What is ‘neo-diversity’?

by George Leef

Here’s the announcement about a lecture tomorrow at N.C. State. I hope that someone will be able to explain to me afterward which students who would have been “diverse” in the old days won’t qualify as “neo-diverse” now.

Teaching to Retain and Recruit Neo-Diversity with Dr. Rupert Nacoste

Caldwell Lounge in Caldwell Hall

10/2/13 5:30–7:00pm

Dr. Rupert Nacoste, professor of Social Psychology and 2013 recipient of the Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching, will lead CHASS’s fall diversity lecture. To create a neo-diverse university environment, we must solve the pipeline problem. To do that we must retain the neo-diverse students who come to us and recruit them into graduate education. Nacoste will outline teaching techniques that influence our retention of neo-diverse students who are already in our majors and show teaching techniques that activate the non-cognitive factors that will bring those students into the pipeline of our graduate education programs to become the professors of the future.
