Gloria Ladson-Billings

Join us at the
Legacy Conference honoring
Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings

The UW-Madison School of Education and the Legacy Conference Planning Committee invite you to join us for three days of innovative, collaborative, and inspiring panels to honor the remarkable career Gloria Ladson-Billings had at UW-Madison as faculty and later the Kellner Family Distinguished Chair in Urban Education.

At the end of 2018, she had been a doctoral advisor for 53 Ph.D. students, including 17 African American women. Over the years, there have been significantly more master’s and undergraduate students who have mentored under her.

“There are lots of great scholars out there,” says Ladson-Billings. “But who are your students? Your legacy can’t just be you.”

We are excited to share in the legacy Gloria Ladson-Billings has started, but even more excited to get a glimpse of the legacy yet to be built.
