We are pleased to announce the IALHEA Diversity Dialogue and Research Forum.   It  will showcase the scholarly work of underrepresented students from Illinois. 

The Illinois Committee on Black Concerns in Higher Education (ICBCHE) and the Illinois Latino Committee on Higher Education (ILACHE) are involved in a collaborative effort to increase the participation of underrepresented students on college and university campuses across the state of Illinois.    

www.icbche.org + www.ilache.com = IALHEA

The goals are to increase faculty student research collaborations; facilitate mentor relationships between faculty and students of color; to increase the persistence of  underrepresented students in academia and enhance their research.
