Reference CHAS Black and Latino Male Conference when making reservations via telephone.
The Claremont Colleges (Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, Pomona College, Pitzer College, and Scripps College) will host the 15th Annual CHAS Black and Latino Male Conference. Each year, the Black and Latino Male Conference brings together students, faculty, administrators and thought leaders from across the nation to consider how to best facilitate the high achievement and success of our Black and Latino male students at elite institutions.
This year’s conference will focus on the Intersections of Race, Class and Sexuality for High Achieving Men of Color in Higher Education. At this critical time in the nation’s history, speakers will share cutting-edge research and lead discussions on crime policy, masculinity, race and sexuality.
The conference will also offer workshops to prepare participants to be competitive applicants to graduate, medical, and other professional schools. Workshops will focus on writing a successful statement of purpose and securing graduate fellowships. Students will have the opportunity to meet representatives from leading institutions.
On Saturday evening, students will have the chance to network with alumni from the Los Angeles area.
Please join us as CHAS continues to lead higher education toward inclusive excellence through institutional transformation in promoting the high achievement and success of men of color.
