CHAS is proud to announce that Providence College will host the 16th Annual CHAS Black and Latino Male Conference. Each year, the conference creates opportunities for intellectual engagement, networking and mentoring for participants during the weekend experience. In addition to individual leadership skill development, participants are given the tools and supports to create action plans to share with members of their respective campuses. 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 institutions dedicated to liberal arts education.
This year’s conference theme is “Hasta Cuando? (How Much Longer?) Lessons From History & Contemporary Struggles for Social, Political and Racial Justice.” We are excited to announce Marc Lamont Hill and Antonio Vargas, as highlighted speakers for this dynamic student-centered conference. Please join us as CHAS partners with Providence College to lead higher education toward inclusive excellence by promoting the high achievement and success of men of color.
As demographic trends continue to shift and the national conversation about college affordability continues, CHAS will consider student debt and the unique, often hidden, costs that underrepresented students face when paying for a liberal arts college education. Please join us for a dynamic conversation focused on student retention and success for institutional representatives from our member institutions. We will exchange ideas, obtain new information, and engage in networking. We look forward to seeing you.
The Consortium for High Achievement and Success, CHAS, offers grants for faculty to develop and implement initiatives that meet the institutional need for teaching innnovation. Faculty of CHAS member institutions are invited to compete for funds that will allow them to undertake a project which promotes the high academic achievement among all students with a focus on promoting success and satisfaction among underrepresented students. Faculty members, teaching in all disciplines, may submit proposals that focus on pedagogy and enhancing the faculty’s role in promoting student success and engagement. Both individuals and groups may submit proposals. Projects should be directed at how we teach, or how we engage our colleagues in thinking about how we teach, rather than what we teach. They may involve pedagogical improvements to courses, creating workshops for faculty on mentoring, or other efforts to enhance the faculty’s role in promoting student success and high achievement. CHAS also views these grants as important in supporting the recruitment, retention, and scholarship of underrepresented faculty on our campuses. Proposals addressing campus life are not eligible for consideration. The selection committee will make up to four awards.
The Consortium on High Achievement and Success (CHAS) convened in 2000 to promote high achievement, leadership and personal satisfaction of students, particularly underrepresented students, on member campuses. Consisting of 31 private, selective liberal arts colleges and small universities, CHAS shares campus climate data, holds collaborative conferences, and develops programs to support the whole student, academically, socially and culturally.
