Join us for the 16th Annual Faculty Conference on Teaching Excellence with keynote speaker, Dr. Freeman Hrabowski!
Compelling demographic and technological changes present our nation with enormous challenges when educating students and preparing them for successful careers. Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), leads a campus widely recognized for its culture of embracing academic innovation to help students of all backgrounds succeed. He will draw on UMBC's experiences, along with three decades of studying minority student achievement nationwide, to discuss approaches for promoting inclusive excellence, academic innovation, and ultimately student success.
Dr. Freeman A. Hrabowski is a consultant on science and math education to national agencies, universities, and school systems. He was named by President Obama to chair the President's Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African Americans. He also chaired the National Academies' committee that produced the report, Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation: America's Science and Technology Talent at the Crossroads (2011).
