The theme of this year's conference is Being Radically Well Together: Addressing the Challenges of Higher Education, and we are thrilled to have Dr. Wendi Williams as our keynote speaker. It will be held on October 6-7, 2024 at the Illini Union in Champaign.

Our conference has a long history at the University of Illinois Counseling Center. Over the past several decades, the focus of the conference has been to educate those who directly work with college students on issues related to diversity, mental health, and the college experience.

The needs and demographics of college students are changing, and we need to evolve as well. As we continue to grow, we have expanded the conference to include all student affairs professionals. Some of the benefits of attending this conference are learning about the issues that can impact young adults, connecting with other professionals in the field, and engaging in robust training related to diversity.

We welcome presenters and attendees who work in counseling centers, student affairs, DEI, and community teachers and administrators who are interested in preparing their students for their time at college.
