Event Details

Join the National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good and the National Center for Institutional Diversity in celebration of Latin@ Heritage Month at the University of Michigan, for an evening dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of campus diversity issues, and the challenges Latin@ students face across the United States.

An opening reception beginning at 5:00pm will feature short films from the PBS series Independent Lens' American Graduate: ¡Vamos a Lograrlo! initiative, as well as the Yo Soy exhibition, a collection of Latin@ stories from across the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor campus gathered as part of the University of Michigan's Latin@ Heritage Month Celebration

At 6:00pm in the Mendelssohn Theatre we will premiere a portion of THE GRADUATES/LOS GRADUADOS, an eye-opening documentary on the challenges facing Latin@ students from across the USA, prior to its national broadcast on PBS.

A panel to discuss the film and success strategies for incorporating diversity and Latin@ students more fully into K-16 academic life will immediately follow the film's screening. Panelists TBA.

Finally, the evening will conclude with a closing reception where attendees are encouraged to network with others from across campus and the greater Ann Arbor community to brainstorm effective ways that the community can best serve a diverse student body, including a growing number of Latin@ students.

Food and refreshments will be provided at both the opening and closing reception(s).

Parking for the event is available at both the Palmer Commons and Maynard Parking Structures located within walking distance of the Michigan League.
