Mr. Robert Nordyke

 

Interested in sponsoring Cumbre 2013?

Thank you for your interest in being a sponsor of the 5th Cumbre (Summit) of the Great Plains which will take place November 8-9, 2013. Cumbre 2013 will help mark the 10th anniversary of the creation of the Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) at UNO, and will focus on issues that are of crucial importance to Latinos, migrants and the metro area.

These summits are renowned for a unique combination of inclusiveness and high quality dialogue. Scholars, together with civil society, policy makers, grassroots and corporate representatives will again engage in informed conversations and offer novel approaches to address issues such as:

* The state of Latinos and the City
* Latin American transformations and why they matter to us all
* Migration patterns and policies today and in the future
* Latino civic, economic and political engagement in the next decade
* The old and new Latino second generations: lessons to be learned and unlearned

Cumbre 2013 will begin with a special reception on Friday, November 8, 2013 to welcome out-of-town guests, introduce the program for the next day, and thank supporters and partners. On Saturday, November 9, from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm, we are planning a keynote address by a nationally-recognized speaker together with a series of interactive conversations or panels (closer to what we call "conversatorios" in Spanish). A cultural event concludes the program on Saturday evening.

The panel presentations and keynote are bilingual and conducted in accessible language to promote conversations across diverse audiences. Cumbre 2013 is free to the public. Small fees are charged for the luncheon keynote. OLLAS will distribute a number of free tickets among students, supporters and volunteers. Openness to the public is one of the signature features of OLLAS' community education events and are made possible by sponsors such as yourself.
