Several graduate students and recent alumni from the University of Wisconsin-Madison will be traveling to Costa Mesa, California, to present their research at the 14th annual national conference of the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE), which runs from February 28 through March 2.
The purpose of AAHHE is to bring together scholars, educators, practitioners, and collaborative organizations to address issues and concerns affecting the Latinx community, with a focus on higher education. The Latinx population is the largest ethnic minoritized population in America, and yet it is still highly underrepresented in undergraduate and graduate enrollments, and graduation rates.
Congratulations and good luck to the following UW-Madison students and alumni:
Congratulations as well to Courtney L. Luedke, an alumna of the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, for being selected as a 2019 AAHHE Junior Faculty Fellow.
The 2019 AAHHE conference theme is “Civil Rights and the LatinX Community: Our Social, Economic, and Educational Future." View the full conference program.
