African American Black Male Summit (Feb. 10, 6:15 p.m.)
This workshop is designed to continue and elevate the unique dialogue regarding critical issues confronting African American/Black Male Student Conduct Administrators. For more than ten years we have been sounding the alarm for African American/Black Male professionals and students. Our society and campuses continues to make choices that alarm the health, safety, and equity of all faculty, staff, and students. A significant component of this process is the continued reevaluation of the critical issues we face as African American/Black Male professionals. The climate of our universities continues to affirm that the African American/Black Males remains to be an endangered species. Is the academy a microcosm of society? So we will discuss survival strategies to elevate each other, and our students as significant contributors to our academic communities. This workshop is designed to engage African American/Black Male professionals in a candid discussion about critical issues facing us and our students. After identifying the critical issues, we will continue the discussion to develop strategies to address them.
