Welcome to the University of Northern Iowa’s 2019 Education Summit

On behalf of the University of Northern Iowa’s College of Education and the Center for Educational Transformation, we would like to invite you to our 2019 Education Summit scheduled for November 11-12, 2019.

The 2019 Education Summit is designed for education and health care providers or educators; K-12 teachers, parents, and students; community members; education leaders; university faculty, staff and students; faith leaders, and policymakers. The Education Summit will explore research, practices, and polices that underpin our current education and health care systems.

Providing strands of discussion focused on culturally and linguistically responsive pedagogy and practice; community, school, and university partnerships; inequity and injustice in education and health; and cultural and linguistic competence in school and health care systems, this Summit will feature presentations and panels, interactive workshops, and dialogue sessions led by experts from Iowa and the nation.

Keynote speakers for the 2019 Education Summit will include:

  • Dr. Malik Henfield, Loyola University Chicago, Chicago, Illinois

  • Dr. Tamika La Salle, University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut

  • Dr. Ahmad Washington, University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky

This Summit will be held in Maucker Union at the University of Northern Iowa. The 2019 Education Summit welcomes diversity: diversity of thought, discipline, agencies, and backgrounds (e.g., researchers, teachers, clinicians, parents, students, and policy makers).

We look forward to seeing you there!
