Michigan AGEP Alliance Fall Conference 2018

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 2018 Fall Michigan AGEP Alliance Conference on Saturday September 15, 2018. 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, engineers, economists, policy makers and scholars of the arts. New this year, the conference will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd cash prizes for the best presenters (oral and poster) for the undergraduate and graduate student/post-doc divisions.
