COUNSELOR EDUCATION PROGRAM -- North Carolina Central University

Dear Colleagues, 


Happy New Year!  


I am reaching out to share a new initiative with you coming from NC State University's campus.  This year marks our first Black Research Symposium.  We are inviting students, faculty, and community members from surrounding universities, colleges, and community-based organizations to participate.  We are also thinking outside of the box, broadening how we center and engage in research.  This means that community-based projects, creative works, panels, community dialogue, teach-ins, as well as industry driven work are all welcome. 


Please share widely with your faculty, students, and community. Our Call for Proposals is open until January 20th.The process to submit a proposal is straightforward and streamlined (see details below).  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.  You can also direct students my way as well (Andaiye Qaasim, assistant director, African American Cultural Center, NCSU).  


Thank you in advance for sharing the announcement, and we hope to see you in March at the symposium.! Please see the full announcement below.
