Higher education remains a viable Route to Change the Status Quo. Whether the student’s reality is hindered by personal struggle, economic hardship, or institutional barriers, our focus is to redirect ourselves and our students toward an individual path that can transform our collective vision of student success. This year’s summit challenges us to examine the academic, socio-economic, political and personal factors impacting African American and Latino males. Issues of equity, access and opportunity present obstacles for colleges, universities and community advocates as we directly influence the lives of students. Despite the adversity students face they dare to dream and aspire. At this year’s conference we have the opportunity to listen to our students’ reality as they speak about their identity as young men of color, their need for individualism, their challenges in relationships, and above all their desire to compete academically in spite of the odds.

Join national experts, educational leaders, and practitioners in higher education, will actively engage in a dialogue relating to educational access, equity, persistence, and graduation.
