The National Black Graduate Student Association (NBGSA) is pleased to announce Las Vegas, Nevada as the host site for its 2012 regional conference. 

The NBGSA Western Regional Conference will be held Jan. 11-13 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. With the grounded theme, "Scholars Achieving Graduate Excellence", NBGSA hopes to create a conference experience that assist scholars during their academic career, as well as recognize and define future avenues which will continue to support and develop graduate students. 

NBGSA is a 501(C) (3) non-profit, interdisciplinary, and student-run organization dedicated to improving the status of Blacks in higher education by systematically identifying and addressing their needs and concerns. We are expecting dozens of graduate and undergraduate students within the western region. This gathering creates opportunities to fact-find, present dynamic and interdisciplinary research, and hear from remarkable local, regional, and nationally recognized keynote speakers. You are also invited to visit our website at www.nbgsa.org to learn more about our organization.
