At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Northwestern University BGSA 15th Annual Research Conference

Radical Ecology: Black Technologies of Innovation and Intervention
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL

April 8-9, 2011

Call for Abstracts!! Registration Open!!

**Registration is FREE**

Radical Ecology will foster a network of scholars who will all contribute, in their distinctive ways, to the ecology of black scholarship. We want Radical Ecology’s presenters to tackle a myriad of issues ranging from social justice to environmental law to identity performance to biochemical discoveries, illustrating cutting edge research and practices that illuminate areas of overlap between our respective disciplines. All scholars of all disciplines are encouraged to apply, especially (but not limited to) visual, textual and performance artists. An exhibition of visual work will take place on Conference Day (Saturday, April 9th).**

Radical Ecology is a space to highlight the scholarly pursuits of students of color representing the humanities, natural and social sciences, and even the business, law and medical sectors. Students, Faculty and Staff will critically engage each other in a day of presentations, attend workshops for professional development, and take advantage of an invaluable opportunity to network with a distinguished and award-winning group of faculty and students.

**All artists interested in exhibiting should submit slides, sketches, or samples of previous work in addition to the abstract detailing how the proposed-entry incorporates or reflects the conference theme.

Conference Highlights:
Keynote speaker: Imani Perry, Princeton University
• Networking Luncheon with Northwestern's Faculty & Staff
• Free Hotel Stay for Out-Of-State Conference Presenters
• Professional Development Mini-Workshops
• An opportunity to network with some of the best scholars you'll ever meet!
