Networking in Higher Education Conference: June 21

Buffalo State College is proud to announce the 2019 Networking in Higher Education Conference, “Defining 21st Century Activism Through Education,” held in collaboration with the University at Buffalo, on Friday, June 21, at the Millennium Hotel Buffalo, 2040 Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga.

I will moderate the plenary session of the conference, “Racism Fatigue in America,” which will feature Steve Peraza, assistant professor of history at Buffalo State, as a panelist. Additionally, Jonathan Hulbert, director of leadership and organizational development in the Professional Development Center, will present an afternoon workshop. This year’s keynote speaker will be Jasmine Rand, the attorney for the Trayvon Martin family. Ms. Rand is not only a professor, national legal analyst, international legal consultant, lecturer, columnist, and civil rights leader; she is also the founding attorney of Rand Law LLC, a Miami-based civil litigation firm.

Conference registration is now open and can be found on the UB website. Please direct questions to associate professor of English Lorna Perez, Buffalo State’s co-chair for this event.
