On behalf of the ILACHE Board of Directors and the 2024 Conference Planning Committee, we are pleased to announce the ILACHE’s 31st Annual Conference to be held at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois on Friday, April 26, 2023. This year’s theme “Campeones de Equidad: Advocating for Latino/A/X Leadership and Access,” will highlight the contributions of Latinx higher education professionals and document their struggles and successes for equity and representation in higher education.
This year we delighted to welcome Dr. Nolan Cabrera, Professor in the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Arizona as the plenary speaker. Dr. Cabrera is a nationally recognized expert in the areas of racism/anti-racism on college campuses, Whiteness, and ethnic studies. He is an award-winning scholar whose numerous publications have appeared in some of the most prestigious journals in the fields of education and racial studies.
Faculty, staff, and students across disciplines are encouraged to submit workshop and poster proposals addressing this year's conference theme. The conference will also provide opportunities for higher education institutions, organizations, and/or business to become conference sponsors. Our sponsors are showcased in our conference marketing materials before and during the conference via our website, social media, direct electronic mail, and our conference application. To register for the conference, submit a proposal, learn about sponsorship opportunities or other questions, please visit us at ILACHE.org.
We hope you will join us in person this year to contribute to this theme, share best practices, and connect with colleagues so that you may return to your institution with the tools necessary to continue to transform higher education.
