On Friday, March 14, 2014, the Graduate Student Community Organization and Becoming Educators of Tomorrow will host the fourth annual Graduate Student Research Conference, "What is Educational Excellence in the 21st Century? Attending to Issues of Diversity, Equity and Social Justice in Our Work." The conference aims to challenge members of our community to think deeply about how themes of excellence, diversity, and equity are integrated in our scholarship, and how, by striving for this integration, we might pave the way for a reconceptualization of educational excellence best suited to the needs, problems, and opportunities of the 21st century.

The conference will open at 12:00 p.m. with a welcome lunch featuring remarks by Lester Monts, senior vice provost for academic affairs, and a student keynote speaker. The program, which concludes at 5:00 p.m., will include panel presentations, a research-in-practice session, and a roundtable session. If you plan to attend, please register for the conference online by Monday, March 10.
