DiverSIdad Conference

Join us for the seventh annual conference to discuss how to engage Hispanic students in higher education. 

Professionals in Multicultural Affairs, Recruitment, Retention, Advising and Counseling divisions are encouraged to attend. 

Brothers Miguel and Francisco Guajardo will share stories and facilitate part of the conference.  Miguel earned a Ph.D. in Educational Administration from the University of Texas at Austin in 2002 and is Professor of School and Community Leadership at Texas State University.  Francisco Guajardo earned a Ph.D. in Educational Administration from the University of Texas at Austin in 2003, is the CEO of the Museum of South Texas History, and formerly a Professor of Organization and School Leadership at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.  Together they have authored three books and approximately 50 articles. Among their recent books includes Ecologies of Engaged Scholarship(2018) and Reframing School Community Partnerships in Education (2016).  In Reframing, Guajardo and Guajardo (along with Militello and Janson) innovate a process for community building and leadership development called the Community Learning Exchange (CLE).  

All participants will receive a complientary ticket to the September 7th performance of Ballet Nepantla presents Valentina, a collection of stories that speak to the strength and resilience of women during Revolutionary Mexico. By fusing contemporary ballet with traditional Mexican folklórico, Valentina shares struggles and triumphs—and explores the spaces between love and hate, hope and despair.
