RICE (Realizing and Addressing Issues in our Culture and Education) is a formal academic and professional conference hosted annually by the Asian Student Union of Grand Valley State University. It provides an opportunity for members of the local community, alumni, professors, and college and high school students to become further educated on current issues in Asian American society. Our goal is to promote Asian awareness and understanding of other cultures.
Join us at this year’s conference on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 8:30AM-4:00PM. RICE will be held at Grand Valley State University’s Pew Campus at the Richard M. DeVos Center in downtown Grand Rapids. RICE is free and registration is requested. Complimentary breakfast and lunch are also offered.
The event consists of a panel, a series of professional development workshops (posted here) with discussion, a keynote speech, and closing ceremonies (including the introduction of the next year’s executive board members). This year’s RICE theme is Linking Generations: Incorporating the Past, Present and Future.
The featured keynote speaker will be acclaimed entrepreneur and adjunct professor, Jung Park, who resides in Denver, Colorado. Read more about him here.
