The goal of the summit is to produce substantive work upon which educators, students, and community leaders can act as change agents for developing successful strategies in educational access, equity, persistence and graduating African American and Latino males.

Concurrent Sessions
Roundtables

Concurrent Sessions - A concurrent session offers the opportunity to present on a topic or program and discuss its relevance and applicability to colleagues and/or students. The goal is to provide attendees with information and tools to improve their programs. Attendees expect high quality presentations that can apply to their own work and be used to increase their effectiveness. Each session will last 75 minutes and we ask presenters to reserve at least 10 to 15 minutes at the end of the session for audience questions.

Roundtables - A round table session is an informal session. In most cases, the discussion will be about a work in progress intended to advance, enhance, or share information about research. Roundtables are best suited for small group discussions. The presenter has 20-25 minutes to share material then participants can move to another table. Presenters are expected to bring copies of their summaries and to remain available for discussion throughout the session. No audiovisual equipment is available.
