Diversity is a community value at the University of New Hampshire.
We are committed to supporting and sustaining an educational community that is inclusive, diverse and equitable. The values of diversity, inclusion and equity are inextricably linked to our mission of teaching and research excellence, and we embrace these values as being critical to development, learning, and success. We expect nothing less than an accessible, multicultural community in which civility and respect are fostered, and discrimination and harassment are not tolerated.
We will ensure that under-represented groups and those who experience systemic inequity will have equal opportunities and feel welcome on our campus. We accept the responsibility of teaching and learning in a diverse democracy where social justice serves as a bridge between a quality liberal education and civic engagement.

This year's theme for the conference is Politically In-Correct: Humor, Satire and Black Consciousness and the keynote speaker is slated to be comedian and social activist Dick Gregory. Presentations and discussions will focus on four main topical areas including: the history of African American humor; the role that gender, race and class have played in various forms of comedic expressions; the use of comedy in the current political climate; and ways in which current artists and politicians use comedy as a tool for expression and protest.
