CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- As part of its ongoing dedication to promote diversity in education, the University of Northern Iowa College of Education will welcome Christine E. Sleeter, professor emerita in the College of Professional Studies at California State University Monterey Bay, from 7 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, March 13, in the Schindler Education Center, Room 247 on the UNI campus. Sleeter will discuss issues relating to race, class, gender and disability in the classroom.

Sleeter is currently the immediate past president of the National Association for Multicultural Education and previously served as a high school learning disabilities teacher in Seattle, Wash. Her research focuses on anti-racist multicultural education and teacher education. Sleeter has published more than 100 articles in journals and edited books, and she has received numerous awards for her work, including the American Educational Research Association Social Justice in Education Award.

"We look forward to Dr. Sleeter's visit as she shares with the College of Education on teaching in increasingly diverse classrooms," said Stephanie Logan, assistant professor in curriculum and instruction at UNI.
