High anxiety, learning challenges, dysfunctional family life, lack of resources, cultural barriers – more than ever before, students come to us with a variety of backgrounds and needs.  Treating them as a homogenous group may once have worked, but today we know we need many different approaches to reach our students and help them excel at post-secondary education. 

How can we create a welcoming environment where each student can succeed?  What tools and resources are available to help us help them?  Is there a way to design engaging educational experiences, both in and outside the classroom, to universally account for all students and their mosaic of needs?  We invite you to join us May 29-31, 2017, to explore and discuss these questions.  Our shared dialogues aim to enrich and empower our students and, in the process, ourselves.

Welcoming Message from the Organizing Committee
