Cost for attendees: FREE!The demographics of the United States are rapidly changing. By the year 2042, the minority (classified as those of any race other than non-Hispanic, single-race whites)will become the majority. But how diverse are our educational systems, especially in rural, suburban and higher education institutions? As America quickly approaches becoming 50% minority, many of our school systems struggle to reach even a critical mass of underrepresented students, faculty and administrators. The purpose of the Autumn 2013 Ohio NAME mini-conference is for us to share best practices and discuss how we as an educational community can better connect with and support minorities in predominantly White institutions.
