Champaign, IL

The Illinois Latino Council on Higher Education (ILACHE), welcomes members and non-members to submit a workshop or poster proposal on or before Sunday, March 08, 2020, 11:59 p.m. (CST).

Submission Guidelines

Workshop Proposals
Faculty, staff, and students across disciplines are encouraged to submit workshop proposals addressing this year's conference theme, "Together we rise: Promoting Leadership, Affirming Identity and Demanding Equity in Higher Education."   

Conference Session Themes:

This year’s conference addresses major concerns Latinos are facing in higher education and in society as a whole. The aggressive anti-immigrant, anti-Latino white nationalist agenda is finding its way into higher education. It appears in the form of deteriorating support of Latino initiatives and shifting discourses that attempt to redefine diversity, adopting modified forms of “melting pot” and efficiency perspectives aimed at erasing or diluting the presence of Latinos on campuses. Our aim is to reaffirm and strengthen the action areas below to sustain and advance a Latino higher education agenda:

Equity: Research or best practices that focuses on broadening representation of Latino students across all areas of higher education—student, faculty, and staff.

Leadership: Research or best practices that examines leadership development of Latino students and professionals in higher education.

Identity: Research or best practices that explores Latino identity in education and society. 

Advocacy: Research or best practices that investigates issues of advocacy of Latino students in education.
Poster Proposals
We welcome poster presentations from students across disciplines. Come share with everyone your ideas, best practices, knowledge, passion, and interests! Poster submissions are not required to follow conference theme or tracks.
