Dr. Luis Paredes will lead an in-depth discussion of diversity and inclusion dynamics in higher education. The conversation will detail important social movements led by students to activate inclusion and intentional diversity programs.

He shares, "As we rethink the future of higher education, we should continue to interrogate systems and structures that often impede progress or change."

Dr. Paredes is a cultural anthropologist, leads the Office of Institutional Diversity and is a Visiting Associate Professor of Social Work at Bridgewater State University.

He was recently a member of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate Design Team for Civil Conversations and currently serves as the Institute’s advisor to the Senior Exhibit & Content Developer.

His upcoming book, “Perú Negro: bailando muchas memorias” (Peru Negro: Dancing Many Memories), will be released in Lima later this year.
