We are pleased to announce the DFI / IALHEA Conference and Diversity Research Forum. This time the event combines the DFI Conference and the African American and Latino Research Forum. It will showcase the scholarly work of DFI Fellows and other underrepresented students from Illinois. The goals are to increase faculty student research collaborations; to improve mentor relationships between faculty and students of color; to increase persistence among African American, Latino, and other underrepresented students; and to improve research skills among these students.
