EnVisions Conference

 

Cover PageEvery year the Coalition of Latin@ Scholars hosts a spring conference about the graduate school admissions process. EnVisions brings together graduate students, faculty, and university staff to discuss issues around the admissions process, financial aid, and the challenges faced by undocumented students, working class Latin@ students and other students of color applying to graduate school.  In the past, current professionals have also joined us to share their insights about navigating their career paths and higher education trajectories.

More information on the EnVisions conference will become available closer to the spring.
