Michigan AGEP Alliance Fall Conference 2016

The Alliance for Graduate Education and Professoriate (AGEP) provides funds and fellowship awards to increase the pool of candidates pursuing masters or doctoral degrees for postsecondary faculty teaching careers from underrepresented backgrounds. A featured experience for program fellows is the annual fall conference for networking, and academic career development.

We are excited to welcome you and your colleagues to participate in the 2016 Fall Michigan AGEP Alliance Conference on Saturday October 22. The conference will be held in East Lansing, MI at the Kellogg Conference Center and Hotel. All AGEP and KCP affiliated graduate students, undergraduates, post-docs, educators, alumni and professionals are welcome.

We want the conference to be a cross-disciplinary experience, full of scientists, economists, policy makers and scholars of the arts.

This year's theme is: "From the Lab to the Classroom: Making Research Relevant"
