2010 Achievement Conference

Who We Are

Who We Are

The 2010 Achievement Conference: "Bridging the Gap: Creating a Better Tomorrow through Innovation, Insight, and Imagination" was presented by the Black Graduate Student Association and co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Educational Equity, the Office of Graduate Educational Equity Programs, the Office of Undergraduate Education, the Commission on Racial/Ethnic Diversity, the Forum on Black Affairs, the Africana Research Center, and the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence.

The purpose of the conference is to foster relationships among juniors, seniors, and graduate students of color, along with faculty and administrators. While faculty, administrators, graduate students, and prospective graduate students of color are encouraged to attend, this conference is open to anyone who is interested in networking with people of color. This is an excellent opportunity for faculty to share their knowledge and experiences with tomorrow's research scholars and professionals.

The conference agenda typically includes professional development workshops, a buffet luncheon (for students attending at least one workshop), and keynote speakers. The conference also features a research exhibition for interested conference participants to showcase their work.
