15th annual Cambio de Colores conference summary

Thank you to all who participated in this year's conference! We had 170 registered attendees from 74 different institutions, including extension services (32%); non-governmental organizations (20%); faculty (17%); students (17%); educators (7%); university staff (4%); and state/local government (3%). This mix of participants – researchers and practitioners from education, health, economic development and other fields – is the conference’s greatest strength.

We had 62 presentations, including nine workshops, stretched across 25 breakout sessions. Our four plenary speakers were Drs. Juan Andrade Jr., Gustavo Carlo, Edmund ‘Ted’ Hamann, and Sandra Magaña. This was our second year to have a poster session and had 14 posters across many topics. 

The conference received overwhelmingly positive feedback through evaluations from attendees, including those who praise the conference for having "such a wide variety of topics, amazing presenters and speakers, and so many people with similar views and goals." The plenary speakers were appreciated for their "great information and research" and for being "extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and engaging." Many participants noted that the networking possibilities offered by the structure of the presentations was one of the best things about the conference.
