Francisco Salinas, director of student diversity and inclusion, attended the National Capitol Forum on Hispanic Higher Education, a virtual event held April 21-22. Two Boise State students also attended: Katelyn Quintero, a business administration major from Caldwell, and Maricela Deveney, a health science major from Canyon County.
The National Capitol Forum on Hispanic Higher Education is held each spring as leaders in the Hispanic higher education community come together to shape and promote an agenda for Congress and the country. The event has become a national platform for creating public and private-sector support for Hispanic-serving institutions.
The conference originally was planned to be held in Washington D.C. but transitioned to a virtual format in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
