Educational Attainment for All Diversity Conference

The Educational Attainment for All Diversity conference is held annually. As a state committed to diversity and the educational attainment of underrepresented students, we recognize not only the importance of academic performance and excellence, but also the consideration of other factors that impact educational opportunity and success for first-generation, low-income, and historically underrepresented groups.
