Event description

Description

The CRLA-Northeast Chapter annual conference will take place on Thursday, March 5th, 2020 at Manhattan College in Riverdale, New York. We are thrilled to be able to give participants a platform to exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, and broaden their knowledge. The conference will give us all an opportunity to discuss the importance and value of equity at your college/university inquiring if they are providing the necessary tools for success. The theme of our annual chapter conference will be Equity and Education: Are we examining best practices and providing our students with the tools to be successful?

We will welcome Dr. Rodney Smith who is co-founder of Sophic Solutions, LLC, a change management consulting firm based in Kansas City, Missouri. He also serves as a Graduate Adjunct Professor in the School of Education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He will discuss racial and ethnic diversity, and cultural understanding. Additionally, a light pastry breakfast and a deli-style sandwich lunch will be provided (and yes, there will be afternoon coffee as well).
