In partnership with EdMobilizer, this event is the first conference to have a regional focus on first-generation and low-income college students in the South. Join us for our Opening and Closing Ceremonies! We will be having Jack Boyd, former president of the Duke Alumni Association and current member of the Board of Trustees, give our keynote address for the Opening Ceremony on Saturday, March 2nd, at 9:30am. Dr. Valerie Hillings, newest director and CEO of the NC Museum of Art, will be giving our closing keynote address on Sunday, March 3rd, at 10:45am. We welcome and encourage all members of the Duke community to attend these speaker events and learn more about the first-generation, low-income experience.
