UT Conference Looks at Growing Latino Population

An ever-growing Latino population is changing the demographic landscape of Tennessee and creating new challenges for professionals, the public sector and communities around the state.

The University of Tennessee is teaming up with several groups in the Knoxville community to provide some guidance through a conference, “The New Latino Immigration to Tennessee: Opportunities and Challenges.”

Faculty and students from area colleges and universities, local professionals, civic leaders and community advocates throughout the state will find useful information at the conference, to be held March 31-April 1 at UT Conference Center, 600 Henley St.

UT Libraries is one of the many sponsors of the event, and a special pre-conference session will be held for librarians on Friday morning.

Pre-registration for the conference is required. Registration forms can be downloaded and faxed or completed online at http://www.lib.utk.edu/~refs/imm-conf/index.html.

The conference costs $15 per day or $25 for both days. Extra fees are required for attendees seeking continuing education credit. For a complete schedule and more information, visit the conference Web site.
