IALHEA DIALOGUE AND RESEARCH FORUM 2017
Building a Community of Scholars
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Call for Abstracts Deadline: Wednesday, March 1, 2017
We are pleased to announce the IALHEA Diversity Dialogue and Research Forum. It will showcase the scholarly work of underrepresented students from Illinois. The Illinois Committee on Black Concerns in Higher Education (ICBCHE) and the Illinois Latino Committee on Higher Education (ILACHE) are involved in a collaborative effort to increase the participation of underrepresented students on college and university campuses across the state of Illinois.
The goals are to increase faculty student research collaborations; facilitate mentor relationships between faculty and students of color; to increase the persistence of underrepresented students in academia and enhance their research.
The HPN Workshop is free and open to all faculty and staff who advise students.
The goal of the HPN Workshop is to empower advisors and staff by offering strategies they can use to encourage and support students who are interested in the health professions. Populations addressed include those who identify as underrepresented minorities, as coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, or as veterans. Through panels, roundtable discussions and case studies, advisors will be provided with information to help their students be more competitive applicants for graduate or professional school.
For questions or additional information about the HPN Workshop, please contact Kimberly Johnson, HCOP Project Manager, UIC School of Public Health at firstname.lastname@example.org.
