>Subject: [Fwd: Black Faculty & Staff Association Conference]
>> Dear TRIO Colleagues:
>> It is my pleasure to announce to you that the University of Maryland
>> Black Faculty and Staff Association is sponsoring a national conference
>> which you might be very interested in attending.  More than 15 years ago
>> during my tenure as President of the Black Faculty and Staff
>> Association, we introduced this conference.  The intent then and now was
>> to bring together "all individuals who are concerned with multi-cultural
>> education and increasing the educational and employment opportunities
>> for individuals traditionally under-represented in colleges and
>> universities....To identify challenges, to develop strategies for
>> improvement and to develop an agenda for change in higher education."
>> The conference will particularly be focused on higher education
>> institutional leadership in promoting excellence, equity, diversity, and
>> civility in our institutions of higher education.  See the attached
>> agenda for more details on the workshops and speakers.  I invite and
>> encourage you to attend this informative and timely conference.
>> As you will observe, this conference agenda focus is quite different
>> than what we would present at our TRIO conference formats.  If you have
>> any questions, please visit our web page:
>> www.inform.umd.edu/BFSAConference or call conference registration chair
>> Ms. Roberta Coates, 301-314-8481 or you may e-mail me at

>> Please pass the word, and join us at this exciting, informative
>> conference to discuss issues that are so critical to all of us.
>> Your TRIO Colleague
>> Jerry L. Lewis, J.D.
>> Conference Chair
