The purpose of the Diversity Seminar is to educate faculty, staff, and students about diversity topics that relate to ECU. This year, we will focus on how to be effective allies to people of color, women, and LGBTQ individuals.

Dr. Bettina Love will be presenting to faculty, staff, and students for 1.5 hours on hip hop pedagogy. Dr. Love's talk will examine the struggles and the possibilities of committing ourselves to Hip Hop civics education and the abolitionist goal of educational freedom, as opposed to reform, and moving beyond what she calls the educational survival complex (i.e. test-taking skills, acronyms, grit, and character education).
