Welcome to the Tomás Rivera Conference Website!


The annual Tomás Rivera Conference, initiated in 1988, honors the legacy of Tomás Rivera by providing an international forum for reflection on the contributions of Chicanos and Latinos in the worlds of the arts, literature, creative writing, culture, business, medicine, and education. The Symposium is purposefully cross-disciplinary, bridging the disciplines to highlight and explore the diversity of issues and concerns that are important to the Latino community as well as the community-at-large.
