Annual Edward Alexander Bouchet Conference at Yale University

The 14th Annual Yale Bouchet Conference on Diversity and Graduate Education with this year’s theme, The Urgency of Civic Responsibility: Building a Movement to Leverage Scholar-Activism in the Academy is upon us.

The Annual Conference finds its origins in the collaboration between Yale University and Howard University and has become a dynamic and increasingly recognized academic conference since.

Yale University, the first institution in the country to award graduate degrees, is Dr. Edward Alexander Bouchet’s alma mater. Dr. Bouchet is the first self-identified African American ever to receive the PhD in any discipline and the 6th person in the Western Hemisphere to be awarded the PhD in Physics.

We invite you to participate in vigorous discussions on diversity in graduate education and ongoing research across disciplines in universities located in all parts of the Nation. You will not want to miss this extraordinary opportunity to network with graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and administrators from across the country.

Whether you are engaged in research, teaching, or any of the many facets of administration, this conference is for you!
