MEn of Color Summit

THE URGENCY IS NOW!

Equity is a value worth striving for - in education and throughout society. This summit is focused on how to make equity across the education pipeline a reality for men of color, with an eye toward reaching local and national goals for degree attainment. Research shows that students who feel included on campus earn post-secondary degrees and certificates at higher rates. The Men of Color 2018 summit will provide participants with tools and resources to actively nurture inclusive environments for men of color and gather ideas on improving equity within the education system.
