There were several APIKC and APAN professionals that attended the annual summer CaCCCHE Conference at UC Davis. The California Council for Cultural Centers in Higher Education hosts a summer conference where professionals doing diversity and social justice work in the region gather to support each other as well as share and generate knowledge. Over 70 professionals attended the conference this past June.
This year Dr. Lori Patton, Associate Professor at Indiana University shared her research on cultural centers on which she recently released a book “Campus Culture Centers in Higher Education”. We also had a chance to hear from a second keynote, Dr. Silvia Hurtado who is a Professor and Director of the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA’s Graduate School of Education.
