This year's keynote speaker is Poet and Author, Richard Blanco. Conference includes a Latino Cultural Festival, Conference Luncheon, Plenary Educational Sessions and a special Anniversary Dinner/Gala.

In 1995, the first Latino Issues Conference (LIC) was held as an opportunity to dialogue about the future growth and needs of the Hispanic/Latino community in an “inclusive discourse for the 21st century”. Since the first conference, the LIC has continued to remain true to this legacy of providing an opportunity to dialogue about the needs within the Hispanic/Latino community.

The primary mission and focus of the conference is to explore, identify and research those issues impacting/pertaining to the needs of the Hispanic/Latino community. This exploration takes place with an intentional engagement of the university and local Hispanic/Latino community, as well as those from the outside in order to raise awareness. The conference serves as an important educational tool within the broader BGSU community.
