First-Generation Faculty Sponsor Information
Faculty Sponsors Speak Out
All educators registered for the GlobalMindED conference are encouraged to sponsor and accompany two first-generation students. Conference fees for these students will be waived.
When first-generation students and educators attend our conference together, both benefit by:
"A brilliant array of dynamic people who care deeply about issues of equality, access for students, and access for adults who need a hand up, not a hand out."
-Lynn Quitman Troyka, Professor, City University of New York
“I would highly recommend anyone who cares about the future of education to attend this conference.”
-Tori Brasher, Assistant Principal, Cabarrus County Schools
“What a wonderful few days of inspiration and deep conversations. I most enjoyed getting a chance to meet people who were there with a common passion to help students. I am so thrilled I was able to take part in the inaugural event.”
-Robin Goldberg, Chief Experience Officer, Minerva
"The nexus of business, technology, education, and humanity creates conversations that change the world."
-DeLaina Tonks, Director, Mountain Heights Academy
“GlobalMindED is where educators, employees, and policymakers who care about the future meet to generate the ideas that will drive that future.”
-Sarah Kravits, Professor, Montclair State University
