Hispanic/Latino Symposium at ASU April 19
The first Hispanic/Latino Symposium, "Building Connections," will be held Friday, April 19, at Appalachian State University.
The symposium is hosted by Appalachian@s, the university's newly established organization of Hispanics/Latinos living in Watauga County. "Building Connections" will be a gathering for ASU students, faculty, staff and community members of Hispanic/Latino heritage, as well as anyone interested in learning more about the new campus organization.
The symposium features two parts -- a student symposium from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and a faculty, staff and administrator symposium from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
All activities take place in Plemmons Student Union's Rough Ridge Room on the fourth floor in the new addition. Parking is available in the parking deck on Rivers Street.
Members of the Watauga County community who are interested in supporting or networking with Appalachian@s are welcome to attend either part of the event.
Invited speakers include Dr. Maria Correa from N.C. State University, Dr. Nolo Martínez from UNC-Greensboro, and Dr. Jose Hernández and Dr. Edelmira Segovia from UNC-Wilmington.
