About this Event

The Summit is an opportunity for individuals to engage in meaningful exchange about the experiences of Black and Latino males in secondary and post-secondary education. College students, community leaders and professionals are invited to attend. The goal of the summit is to promote the post-secondary educational attainment of Black and Latino males, and offer culturally relevant strategies, information, and resources to better equip students for personal, academic and career success.

This year’s theme is “Rewriting the Narrative (of the Black & Latino Male Identity).” Sessions will focus on the experiences of Black and Latino male students with an emphasis on one or more of the following topics: masculinity/male identity, career and professional development, entrepreneurship, retention, graduation and academic achievement, social and community engagement, and navigating academic and workplace spaces as males of color.

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Erik Hines, is an associate professor in the department of Educational Psychology at the University of Connecticut. He is also the faculty director of the ScHOLA2RS House (Scholastic House Of Leaders in support of African American Researchers & Scholars), an African-American male learning community. To learn about Dr. Hines, visit: https://education.uconn.edu/person/erik-hines/

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

We hope you’ll consider joining us on April 25! CSCU member institutions are limited to 5 tickets for current students and at least one professional. For questions, email mgolden@capitalcc.edu.
