Latino Education Summit

Do you work with Latinx students? Or struggle with resources to give them such as scholarships? Or perhaps wonder what terms to use such as Hispanic or Latino/a? Sometimes it can be confusing, especially if working with undocumented or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students. 

The Latino Education Summit is for educators, administrators, faculty, school counselors, coaches, recruitment, front line and other staff from K-12 institutions, colleges and universities, Latino college students, and others working with Latino students across the state.  It will provide an opportunity to obtain cultural best practices, information, guidance, tools, and strategies that can be implemented to serve, retain and propel Latino students to achieve their educational goals and to close the Latino academic achievement gap in higher education and the workforce.  It will also provide Latino college students with resources; information; and practical tools to help them overcome barriers, self-advocate, and succeed. Plus, it is a great opportunity to network, and lunch will be provided!

I have been working with Latinx students for the past 7 years and I have heard many times that they wish they would have known about scholarships specifically for them or how to explain the FAFSA process to their parents.  At this summit, they will provide that information to you.  I hope to see you there!

The summit will take place Friday, March 3, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa.
