The Institute for Diversity and Inclusion in Emergency Management’s “Student Voices Sessions” are a collective approach to capturing themes from diverse student groups including students of color, women, LGTBQ, and individuals with disabilities that often have a challenging time in academic institutions. Inspired by student testimonials related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in emergency management, the Student Voices Sessions offer a platform to capture themes and influence change that encourages diverse and inclusive leadership in emergency management. It is the student perspective, centered on the need for intentional diversity and representation in all forms, that will be highlighted through this series. Each perspective will serve as a resource, in addition to known data, to outline solutions that better support diverse students and their journey to academic success in emergency management and homeland security-related career fields. This series will consist of four sessions: 

February 18: Identifying Needs of Diverse Students in EM/HS Programs

February 25: Defining Student Experiences in EM/HS Programs 

March 4: Supporting Students: Identifying Solutions for Barriers to Student Success

March 11: Collaborative Learning: Bridging the Gaps Between Academicians and Students
