EAU CLAIRE - The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host the American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference April 25-27 in Davies Center.

The conference will offer an unusual opportunity for students to get involved and help make a difference. Student presenters will share their ideas and research with peers, and students of color will have the opportunity to talk about important issues affecting them, said Jim Vance, director of multicultural affairs at UW-Eau Claire and AMSLC staff chairperson.

The theme of the conference, "Career Success: Mentoring, Preparing and Challenging Students for the 21st Century," is timely as universities and colleges move toward the 21st century, Vance said. A career fair will be the central focus of the conference, allowing student to take advantage of the opportunity to network for internships and future employment.

"It is vital that we work to increase our ability to network, get together to get ahead, grow spiritually, and develop the resources leading to greater wealth, career and relationship success," Vance said. "This conference allows us to realize our connectedness to one another and to share, give, and maximize all of our community and business resources."

Conference sponsors include Royal Credit Union, the UW-Eau Claire American Ethnic Coordinating Office, West Central Wisconsin Consortium, Northern States Power Co. and First Federal of La Crosse/Madison.
