Student/Faculty Development Symposium—Retention and Diversity
May 14, 2010, 9 a.m.–3 p.m.
The Latino Center for Excellence at Governors State University is sponsoring a free symposium for students, faculty, and staff from across the region on the issues and concerns facing Latino and other students from diverse backgrounds in higher education.
The goal of the symposium is to increase awareness of the social, economic, and cultural barriers that negatively impact student success in higher education.
It is our hope that increased understanding will lead to more effective teaching and academic advising at both the community college and university levels.
Our keynote speakers are experts in issues surrounding access to education and equitable and fair education practices.
- Dr. Christina Gomez
- Dr. Frank D. Sanchez
GSU faculty members, trained in best practices for providing equitable educational opportunities within the classroom, will share their discoveries and observations in breakout sessions.
