SSU to host the Inaugural Hispanic and Minority Serving Institution Conference- July 18 & 19

From Enrolling to Thriving: Transforming Hispanic Serving Institutions in New England. Best Practices for Latinx Student Success

This conference will bring together Hispanic Serving Institutions, Minority Serving Institutions and emerging Hispanic Serving Institutions to build community and increase capacity to intentionally “serve” this student population with the intent to close equity gaps and create a higher educational environment where all students can thrive. 

This conference is funded by a HEIF consortium grant with Bunker Hill Community College, Holyoke Community College and MassBay Community College.

The conference will offer the opportunity to hear from, and network with national and local educational, government and policy leaders, scholars, students, and community practitioners. Dr. Deborah Santiago, Co-founder and CEO, Excelencia in Education, will be out Keynote speaker on July 18th. Dr. Gina Garcia will be the Keynote on July 19th.

As the Commonwealth’s Civic Engagement University and the first four-year public institution on the cusp of becoming a Hispanic and Minority Serving Institution, Salem State recognizes the importance of community, leadership and advocacy to enhance student and community outcomes. We are thrilled to host this inaugural conference and hope you can join us!

This event is free for SSU students, faculty and staff. Registration is open and it is filling up fast.
