Latino Education Summit Monday

 


 

 Black Radio Network will join 60 universities throughout the United States on Monday (March 29) to present a live, town hall Webcast of the annual Latino Education and Advocacy Day Summit at California State University-San Bernardino.  

The new "Handbook of Latinos and Education" (http://emurillo.org/handbook.htm) will be presented at the summit. This comprehensive work maps Latino education as an academic field worthy of study and investigation. Bradley Levinson, director of the IU Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and an associate professor of education in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, was a collaborator on the project.

 

The objective of the LEAD summit is to promote a broad-based awareness of the crisis in Latino Education and to enhance the intellectual, cultural and personal development of our community's educators, administrators, leaders and students.

Our free one-day summit will:

Leadership: encourage leadership through our inspirational speakers. We ask ourselves: What are effective leadership strategies during these tumultuous times? As change agents, how do we think outside the box? What are effective innovations for closing the achievement gap, student retention and success; student services; teaching and academic affairs?

 

Diversity: provide education and resources in partnership with other educators to promote respect for differences and an appreciation of diversity. We ask ourselves: How can we best provide a challenging and supportive atmosphere for gender, racial and ethnic minorities?

Higher Education: encourage and provide opportunities for Latinos to attend college by sharing information regarding the California Law AB540, Financial Resources to help pay for college, and 
information/recruitment to the plethora of advanced degrees offered by CSUSB, particularly theEd.D. Doctorate Program in Educational Leadership.

 

Culture and Arts: celebrate our Latino heritage, spirit and achievement with displays of Latino art, music and history. This summit will provide a good opportunity to take a deeper look into 
the Latino family values that make Latinos a particular group by discussing our preferences, motivations, expectations and the impact of some of our cultural traits in educational endeavors as well as their linkages to the U.S. workplace and economy.

Resources: provide teaching resources and partners for teaching through our research, educational programs and the exhibits on display during the summit.
