Building and Creating Better Communities: Addressing the Social Determinants of Health

You are cordially invited to the IALHEA Diversity Dialogue and Research Forum. The Illinois Committee on Black Concerns in Higher Education (ICBCHE) and the Illinois Latino Committee on
Higher Education (ILACHE) together with campus partners are involved in a collaborative effort to increase the participation of students-of-color on college and university campuses across the state of Illinois. The goals are to increase faculty-student research collaborations; facilitate mentor relationships between faculty, professional staff, and students of color, and increase the persistence of students-of-color in academia and enhance their research skills. The event will showcase the scholarly work of underrepresented students from Illinois.
