(Patrick) #1

Higher education experts from the University of Houston College of Education will share their research on pressing issues at the upcoming Association for the Study of Higher Education conference in Florida.

College faculty, students and alumni will present on an array of topics, including college reform, minority-serving institutions, the transition to community college and diversity in higher education. The conference takes place Nov. 14-17 in Tampa.

"This year’s theme – “Envisioning the ‘Woke’ Academy” – underscores the importance of work being done by our faculty and students,” said Cathy Horn, chair of the College’s Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies and a professor of higher education. “Researchers at the University of Houston are asking critical questions about and providing robust answers for some of the most challenging educational and social issues of our time. The work matters not only because it advances the knowledge base but because it advances the human condition.”
