Esperanza en Educación uses history and culture in such a way that motivates and empowers attendees to take control of their future. The purpose of this conference is to promote positive self-esteem, social consciousness, and cultural awareness, while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of higher education. We hope that the workshops and interactions with currentLatino/a Hispanic UW students, staff, and faculty and the community will provide both the resources and role models to help students make a commitment to pursue higher education. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the UW and discover all the possibilities awaiting.

Note: Participation is open to all students regardless of race/ethnic background.
