he Campus Awareness+Compliance Initiative (CACI)
has rescheduled this year’s National Student Conference on the Mixed-Race Experience for September 22-24. College students of mixed-race heritage and faculty from across the country will participate in the conference in St. Paul, Minnesota. The event will be hosted by members of Bridges, “a student organization for bi- and multiracial, cross-cultural, and transracially adopted students” at Macalester College
, a highly acclaimed liberal arts school in St. Paul. The theme of the conference, “How Do We Fit In: The Role of the Mixed Experience in a Multicultural Society” will be explored via workshops and presentations throughout the three-day weekend. For more information, go to the CACI site; a link to conference details is provided in a menu under “Updates.”
Also look for details on the CACI site for the third annual National Mixed-Heritage Student Leadership Retreat scheduled for June 23-26 outside Seattle. At the past two retreats, students from across the nation spent several days exploring their mixed heritage and learning valuable leadership and grassroots organizing skills. Up to 40 applicants will be accepted for the retreat. Interested students (aged 16 and up) should go to the CACI site to download a registration packet and obtain more information.
