The first event is titled, "Supporting Latin@ Students at UW-Milwaukee and Marquette,"
and will take next Friday, Sept. 22 from 12 to 1 p.m. in the Education Building's Wisconsin Idea Room. Jacqueline Black from Marquette University and Alberto Maldonado from UW-Milwaukee will speak about their efforts to support Latin@ students on campus.
The second talk
will take place on Oct. 24 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. in the Education Building's Wisconsin Idea Room and features Armando Ibarra from the Department of Labor Education, UW-Extension, discussing his findings and recommendations from his research of how Wisconsin Latin@ families are integrating into local communities.
WISCAPE is housed within UW-Madison's School of Education, and "supports the pursuit, sharing, and implementation of promising ideas for addressing fundamental challenges in postsecondary education in Wisconsin, the United States, and internationally."
