Submit a proposal and/or register today for the Latinx Educational Excellence in the MIdwest Conference hosted by the University of Iowa’s College of Education!
Although the focus is on education, we invite faculty members, student affairs professionals, P-12 teachers, graduate and undergraduate students across the Midwest who examine Latinx educational issues from multiple perspectives to present their empirical, critical or historical works. Work from departments of history, literature, social work, public health, ethnic studies, education, and other related fields are invited to present and attend.
The conference organizers welcome inquiries regarding paper and presentation topics that explore an array of topics related to teaching, learning, and research in Latinx education that include, but are not limited to:
• Latinx issues in P-12 education
• Latinx issues in Higher Education
• Immigration and the Midwest
• English Language Learners in Education
• Undocumented Students in the Midwest
• Latinx History (Local, National, and/or regional)
• Latinx in STEM
• Latinx identities
*Proposals due by 11:59 p.m. on September 1, 2017.
We will also offer travel grants Student Travel Grants for students that require travel to the conference. Any student accepted to present at the conference is eligible to apply for a competitive travel grant to support attendance. A limited number of awards are available and preference will be given to graduate students accepted to present a paper and who will be traveling more than 160 miles to Iowa City.
