Global Citizen Forum 2020

Drake is partnering with the University of KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) to host a virtual conference on equity and inclusion in higher education March 3-5, 2021.


Institutions of Higher Education face diversity, equity, and inclusion issues globally with unique challenges and creative solutions. The 2021 Global Citizen Forum will bring together educators, students, policy makers and citizens from around the world to explore the struggles, strategies, and solutions for creating a more equitable and inclusive higher education field. Visit our About page to review the conference objectives and event details. 

Call for Proposals

We invite proposals for practitioner and paper presentations; workshops and interactive sessions; posters; and roundtable or panel discussions. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to apply to present. Drake students may also apply to present at the Nelson Student Research Symposium taking place on the final day of the conference.


This conference will take place entirely online, and registration is required via Eventbrite. The cost to attend the conference is $50, paid at the time of registration. All undergraduate and graduate students from any institution are eligible for free entry.
