Eastern to Host Latino Student Leadership Conference

Written by Este Yarmosh

Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University will host the Seventh Annual New England Latino Student Leadership Conference on April 3 and 4.   The two-day conference will begin on April 3 at 5:30 p.m. in the Betty R. Tipton Room of the Student Center.  Eastern President Elsa Núñez will deliver the keynote address.  The conference will continue with a career fair at 9 a.m. on April 4, outside the Student Center Café. 

 More than 300 Latino college students from across New England are expected to attend.  The theme of the conference is "Five Steps for Success."  The conference is designed to encourage connections among Latino college student leaders in New England; showcase practical, progressive approaches in leadership development through workshops and panel discussions; and provide opportunities to network professionally and socially.

"We are very excited to be hosting this conference," said Michael Piña, vice president of Eastern's Student Government Association.

The leadership conference was started in 2003 at Brown University by Salvador Mena, an administrator at Brown, in an effort to connect Latino college students with their school and home communities.   Eastern hosted the conference in 2004.
