The third biennial Division 45 Conference will be held June 19-21, 2014 at the University of Oregon. The goals of the conference are: (1) the presentation of state-of-the-art research related to the psychological aspects of individuals from all ethnic minority groups within the United States; (2) the professional development of ethnic minority researchers (students and professionals); and (3) greater networking and collaboration among researchers studying ethnic minority issues across various fields of psychology. This is the only conference specifically devoted to research relevant to Division 45.

The conference co-chairs are Dr. Gordon Nagayama Hall and Dr. Robert Sellers. The conference will feature outstanding plenary speakers and symposia, as well as preconference workshops for professional development. Confirmed speakers for plenary sessions include:

The University of Oregon is a mid-sized, tree-lined campus in Eugene, two hours south of Portland. Eugene is quite pleasant in late June, with average temperatures in the mid-70s. The city is known for its outdoor activities, and is proximal to the Oregon coast, the Cascade Mountains, wineries, and breweries. Eugene has a vibrant Saturday Market that sells farm fresh produce, local foods, and handcrafted goods. Six airlines service the Eugene Airport with direct flights from several major hubs in the west.
