The College of Education at Illinois Graduate Student Conference will take place March 9, 2018, at the Education building in Champaign.

The mission of the Graduate Student Conference is to build networks between faculty, colleagues, advanced undergraduate students, and graduate students within the field of education. As a community, it is our aim to address the ways educational access, equity, and opportunity affect, and are affected by, our broader society.

We also strive to introduce new scholars to the important role that academic conferences will play in their scholarly endeavors; to create a safe space for budding scholars to present their ideas; and to serve as a bridge between sharing scholarship within Education at Illinois and the broader field.
