This colloquy will gather Latino/a faculty by invitation who are teaching at colleges, universities, and theological schools for sustained conversation about pedagogy. The goal of the conversation will be to identify the distinctives and commonalities among Latino/a faculty in their teaching and learning styles and to contribute toward a supportive network of Latino/a scholars.

All participants will receive a stipend of $3000 for full participation in all three meetings of the colloquy, plus local expenses and travel.

Please Note: U.S. Law prohibits the Wabash Center from paying stipends to certain classes of foreign national status.

* Immigration status has no bearing on the Wabash Center’s selection of participants, but only on our ability to pay these participants a stipend. We deeply regret these restrictions but are confident that participants who are not eligible for a stipend will nonetheless find our programs valuable even without a stipend. The Wabash Center is, however, able to reimburse ALL participants for all local expenses and travel for the workshop or colloquy.
