Diversity in Action Research Series

Bridging Research and Practice

We, at institutions of higher education, have the unique responsibility and opportunity to contribute to a better understanding of the complexity of human experiences and integrate our academic research with the world of policy and action. This series highlights the research of our outstanding Mizzou faculty and informs and engages scholars, students, and practitioners in conversations around this research.

Each seminar includes a 40-minute research presentation followed by a 20-minute question and answer session which offers presenters and participants an opportunity to exchange ideas. We hope this conversation will stimulate new research directions and identify practical applications.
