The Afrikan Student Union's Higher Education Conference seeks to provide students from our neighboring inner city schools with an engaging and uplifting perspective on seizing their right to higher education. The students are brought to UCLA’s campus for a day to participate in the conference.Throughout the day, students, teachers, counselors and parents will have the unprecedented opportunity to hold intuitive and collective dialogue with other middle & high school students from nearby campuses. UCLA faculty, UCLA student organizations, college students and  community members will also be participating in workshops addressing their needs and concerns regarding college academics, enrollment, admissions obstacles and preparation.
