Join us for a transformative experience where individuals -- scholars, researchers, and practitioners from higher education, K-12, community organizations, non-profits, government, foundations, and small businesses -- come together to build and strengthen inclusive communities around research, innovation, and educational excellence.
Call for Proposals
We’re thrilled to announce the Call for Proposals for the 2nd annual ARIE conference. We are looking for interactive presentations and poster proposals that advance where and how we together reimagine existing or build new systems, structures, and practices to ensure every student can thrive in a welcoming and diverse learning environment.
In 2022, more than 400 people came together for George Mason University’s first ARIE (then Anti-Racism and Inclusive Excellence) conference, focused on creating a vision for the future of opportunity and belonging. ARIE has evolved into Access to Research and Inclusive Excellence. This new name embodies Mason’s steadfast dedication to promoting inclusivity within higher education and other fields. This strategic direction underscores our unwavering commitment to building a place of belonging and opportunity for all students, fulfilling our promise in education and future success.
