PBCOHE ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Forty-eight years ago, K. Leroy Irvis founded the Pennsylvania Black Conference on Higher Education to examine the impact of state and federal educational policies on persons of color in Pennsylvania and advocate for greater access for minority students, faculty and staff. This year's theme, “Valuing Diversity to Cultivate & Sustain Student Success”, celebrates the rich diversity of our organization. PBCOHE is seeking to learn from faculty, staff and graduate students whose work examines what forces currently shape the landscape within higher education. These may include changes we anticipate in the coming years, and how minority students might benefit from or be hampered by recent changes and innovations involving recruitment and retention efforts, advancements in technology and online learning, and national or local educational policies, among other areas.
