August 11, 2015

Wisconsin's Equity & Inclusion Laboratory (Wei LAB), along with The Ohio State University's Todd Anthony Bell Resource Center on the African American Male, announces the Fourth Annual International Colloquium on Black Males in Education. The 2015 Colloquium will take place Oct. 6-9 at the University of the West Indies-Mona in Kingston, Jamaica. 

The theme of this year's Colloquium is "Creating Opportunity Through Education: Re-Engineering the Social Ecosystem for Black Males." Bringing together scholars, practitioners, policy makers, funders, students and concerned citizens, the Colloquium provides attendees with a valuable arena for discussion, community-building, learning and thought. The Colloquium will examine global dynamics of Black males in education over the course of three days' worth of program, as well as through Pre-Colloquium Academies offering workshop settings for students to network and learn. 

Registration is now open for individuals interested in attending the Colloquium. A tentative schedule, as well as information on registration and travel, can be found on the Colloquium website. RSVP to the Facebook event to stay updated on Colloquium announcements here.
