Black and Latino Male Summit call for proposals

Saturday, December 14, 2013

The 2014 Black and Latino Male Summit (BLMS) provides a forum for Black and Latino men to discuss issues on manhood and to develop strategies to achieve academic success, professional development, and wellness.  Furthermore, the organizers and sponsors of this summit seek to promote camaraderie, coalition building, and community between Black and Latino men at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  Last year’s event was attended by about 100 students, community members, and administrators; summit participants came from an array of colleges and universities: 2-year, 4-year, public and private.  This year's event will be held on Saturday, February 2, from 10am-5pm in the Activities & Recreation Center (ARC) at 201 E. Peabody Dr. in Champaign, Illinois.

Summit organizers encourage submission of innovative proposals that address the conference's focus on Black and Latino Males in higher education.

Proposal Submission Deadline: Friday, January 24, 2014 (5:00pm CST).  Proposals can be submitted through the following link: http://oiir.illinois.edu/2014BLMSCallForProposals
