Conference Theme: Re-Imagining Multicultural Education in Changing Times

In these times of change locally and globally those who advocate for and work toward greater equity and social justice in education must strengthen their resolve to act on behalf of students. We are forced to ask what is the role of Multicultural Education and its educators in times of great challenge?

The 27th Annual International Conference of the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) will provide a forum for practitioners, researchers, community activists, and policymakers to engage in dialogue, share research, and offer workable solutions to the issues we face in education. It is vital for everyone to participate in this important work in K-12 schools, universities, communities and every space where learning occurs to ensure that we build a better world where all children can thrive. The NAME 2017 conference, in Salt Lake City provides an opportunity for thought provoking exchange, renewed vision and taking action on issues affecting all aspects of diversity and social inequities experienced by students in their learning contexts. We remain hopeful, inspired, and engaged as we recommit ourselves to the cause of justice and equity in education and society at large.
