Time: Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m.  Event 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Saint Mary's University of Minnesota Event Center
2540 Park Avenue
Minneapolis, MN 55404-4403

2016 Highlights: Keynote presentations by Gary Howard, New Wilderness Project, and Paul Chappell. Local breakout session presenters, artists and youth will lead conversations and activities throughout the day focused on educational equity. 

What Makes It Special: Most educational conferences are provided as an opportunity for educators only. By doing that, multiple perspectives are missing in the conversations. Our goal is to bring all voices together and move from discussion to action. Through collaboration focused on equity, the Saint Mary’s Graduate School of Education’s Missing Voices: Equity in Education Summit brings together educators, students, families, and community members. When missing perspectives are intentionally included, our community is bound to be more creative in our solution-making and we will increase the opportunity to collectively improve the future.

Why Attend? Throughout the day, participants have the opportunity to learn strategies, identify new resources, experience creative expression, engage in dialogue and intentional networking, and commit to individual action toward solutions to make our schools more equitable.
