Thank you for your interest/involvement in presenting to members of AUCCCD at our annual conference. Here is important information about AUCCCD's commitment to inclusive excellence, the promotion of social justice, civility, and collegiality. We hope it helps you shape your presentation in a way that best fits with AUCCCD values.

AUCCCD is an organization of highly diverse members on all characteristics of identity (e.g. race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual identity, religion, and other characteristics of identity) and professional affiliation (e.g. social workers, psychiatrists, licensed professional counselors, psychologists, and other professions).  As professionals, we serve university and college students who represent every facet of cultural identity.  As such, we do not use disrespectful or derogatory images or language about any particular groups, or engage in actions that would minimize or invalidate people because of who they are.
