The Office of Multicultural Student Life partners with various campus offices and academic departments to host a one-day, campus-wide diversity symposium. The “Diversity Dialogue Symposium” provides a meaningful out-of-class experience and fosters a campus environment where students are free to discuss cultural differences.

This one-day symposium will provide an opportunity to engage the campus community in dialogue about current topics related to diversity. All students, faculty, staff, parents, and community members of all backgrounds are welcome to participate. This event is certain to have a lasting impact as all participants will be encouraged to take what they learn to enhance the campus environment and make a positive difference for all members of the university community.
