Join us for a one-day summit focused on the opportunity and challenge of educating an increasingly diverse Wisconsin, hosted the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).
The summit will be held in Madison, Wisconsin, and will feature Jamie Merisotis, the president and CEO of the Lumina Foundation, as keynote speaker. James Minor, the senior strategist for academic success and inclusive excellence at California State University, will also be a featured speaker, as will noted researchers and practitioners from colleges and universities across the state.
Our aim is to raise awareness of Wisconsin's underrepresented populations and to cultivate dialogue among conference participants -- including college faculty, K-12 educators, administrators, staff, students, and policymakers -- focused on sharing and developing ideas for educating our diverse state.
