2016 Winter Representatives Meeting

WRM16 Save The Date

In light of the rapidly changing higher education landscape, the continuing challenges related to high achievement of underrepresented students, and especially the forthcoming decision in the Fisher vs. University of Texas case, CHAS will host this conference to facilitate a dynamic conversation focused on student success for institutional representatives as well as access professionals from our member institutions. We have developed our conference this year to help professionals involved in inclusion initiatives anticipate the new realities of their vital work.

 Please join us to exchange ideas, obtain new information, and engage in networking. We look forward to seeing you.

The 15th Annual Black and Latino Male Conference hosted by The Claremont Colleges

Claremont, California November 20-22, 2015!

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.
