The summit will be held in Madison, Wisconsin, and will feature Jamie ​Merisotis, the president and CEO of the Lumina Foundation, as keynote speaker. James Minor, the senior strategist for academic success and inclusive excellence at California State University, will also be a featured speaker.

Our aim is to raise awareness of Wisconsin's under​represented populations and to cultivate spirited dialogue among conference participants -- including faculty, administrators, staff, students, and policymakers -- focused on sharing and developing ideas for educating our diverse state.

Registration ($25 general/$10 students) will open ​in January and includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks.
