CEHD To Serve As 2018 College Champion At RISE Conference

The College of Education and Human Development will serve as the 2018 College Champion at this year’s Race, Identity and Social Equity (RISE) Conference, hosted by the Department of Multicultural Services, on Friday, February 2.

The RISE conference, part of the year-long RISE Initiative, creates an environment for students, faculty and staff to discuss research and issues related to diversity and inclusion that higher education faces.

As the RISE Conference’s College Champion, CEHD is committed to expanding opportunities for underrepresented populations, increasing diversity education for members of the Texas A&M community and sharing information about the importance of understanding issues of race and ethnicity.

CEHD students Sarah Heaton, Adriana Arredondo, Monica Hernandez and Ellen Bray are among 13 RISE fellows presenting at the conference.

The fellows attend the NCORE conference, conduct research during the fall semester, then relay their findings at the upcoming RISE conference in spring.

Dr. Joyce Alexander, dean of the college, will present welcoming remarks to conference attendees.

“Programs and initiatives like TAMU RISE advance the University’s diversity mission and the institutional pursuit of academic excellence,” said Dr. Alexander. “The college is so proud to sponsor this event and be recognized for our own efforts in promoting diversity, inclusion and collaboration across the Texas A&M Community.”
