SUPCE - October 14, 2023

The School and University Partnership Conference of Education

Transforming Education through Collective Action: Reimagination, Academic Success, Mental Health, & Cultural Development

  • Breakout sessions on timely topics
  • Roundtable discussions
  • Door prizes, snacks, and networking
  • Poster sessions for student presenters
