First-Generation Faculty Sponsor Information


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:

  •  Creating lasting mentor and mentee relationships
  •  Establishing a sense of community within academia
  •  Partnering and establishing Global MindED communities on campus
  •  Promoting an interest and curiosity for learning
  •  Collaborating on best practices
  •  Building a diverse talent pipeline

"The nexus of business, technology, education, and humanity creates conversations that change the world."


-DeLaina Tonks, Director, Mountain Heights Academy
