Ivy Tech, IU to co-sponsor 2010 Indiana Latino Leadership Conference

VALPARAISO – Ivy Tech Community College students and Indiana University Bloomington students from the Latino Cultural Center (La Casa) will co-sponsor the 11th annual Indiana Latino Leadership Conference.

The one-day conference will be held February 27, 2010, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Ivy Tech’s Valparaiso Campus. This year’s theme is “A Call to Action: From Dreams to Realities.” This will be the 11th year IU has sponsored the conference, but it will be the first year for Ivy Tech to host the event. The conference is designed to cultivate leadership among Latino students.

The annual conference hosts more than 350 Latino high school and college students from across Indiana.

The mission of the Indiana Latino Leadership Conference is to celebrate the uniqueness of Latino students in a forum by and for students. The forum seeks to cultivate the exchange of ideas, values, and beliefs in order to promote scholarship, leadership development, and empowerment of Indiana’s college and high school Latinos.

The conference is open to the public and registration can be completed online. The fee for students is $10.

Individuals or organizations interested in securing a booth during the conference, may contact Tari Morales at tmorales@indiana.edu or Molly Borneman at mborneman@ivytech.edu.
