UW Young, Gifted & Black Conference – Feb 1

The purpose of this conference is to promote positive self-esteem, social consciousness, and cultural awareness, while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of higher education. The presenters hope that the workshops and interactions with current African American UW students, staff, and faculty and the community will provide both the resources and role models to help students make a commitment to pursue higher education. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the UW and discover all the possibilities awaiting.

Target group:  African American high school students with a 3.0 or higher GPA

Saturday, February 1 from 8 AM to 5 PM
