Pre-Conference & Conference schedules will be posted soon!

Stay tuned for more information!


The 2016 Communicating Diversity Conference will be held in the Memorial Student Center (MSC) on the Texas A&M campus in College Station, Texas.


Texas A&M has a large and busy campus, parking is always tight. We encourage those who will be attending to save some extra time for navigating campus and finding parking places.

We suggest parking in the hourly slots at the University Center Garage (UCG). Alternative locations include the Central Campus Garage or Northside Garage.

For more information about visitor parking, see the university’s transportation services page. This page displays real-time parking availability and offers and app (for iPhone or Android) that can ease the parking process.

Please read all signs about parking carefully and follow all regulations. Campus officials can and will tow cars parked in unauthorized locations.


For those of you visiting from out of town, we crowd-sourced a list of our favorite places to eat in Bryan/College Station. We’ll have many locals about, feel free to ask us for a recommendation or directions. Those registered for the Friday workshop or Saturday Keynote Lunch can plan to eat with us for those meals.
