Taylor Symposium

30th annual Joseph T. Taylor Symposium

Examining issues of interest in urban America and among communities of color

Planning is underway for the 2019 Joseph Taylor Symposium by IU School of Liberal Arts Department of Communication Studies in conjunction with Spirit & Place. Expect additional celebrations throughout the day-long event to mark the Symposium’s 30th year and IUPUI’s 50th anniversary. Save the date and plan to attend on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at the IUPUI Campus Center.

This year’s theme, “Communicating to Equalize Health at the Crossroads of America” centers on communication around health disparities in Indiana/Indianapolis as they relate to vulnerable populations.

The speakers will present the state of affairs of health care as it relates to vulnerable populations in the city and the role that communication does or could play within the various channels, organizations, agencies, and more.

The Joseph T. Taylor Symposium at IUPUI features panel discussions and talks by IUPUI, local, and national experts around a different theme. Joseph T. Taylor Excellence in Diversity Awards, honoring people and programs who have improved diversity at IUPUI are also presented. The symposium is open to the public.
