CREO Attends the Midwest Sociology of Education Conference

With support from Professor Emeritus and former CREO Director Maureen Hallinan, CREO faculty members and graduate students attended the Midwest Sociology of Education Conference on November 7-8, 2013 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The conference brings together faculty and graduate students from several Midwestern universities: DePaul, Michigan State, Northwestern, Ohio State, University of Cincinnati, University of Iowa, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Wisconsin. 

Developed in the 1980s by Hallinan and colleagues from the participating universities, the gathering aims to build a regional academic community in which research is shared and discussed.  The group met annually through the 1990s and, after a long hiatus, reconvened by popular demand this year.
