MU students, faculty, staff, and administrators will share information next week at the 2010 Mizzou Diversity summit.

Held on Oct. 20 and 21 at Memorial Union, participants will hear about the way that university has tried to make the community more diverse of the past two years.

All will get the opportunity to discuss and plan strategies to strengthen MU’s identity as an environment and culture that values diversity in its many ways and forms.

Two keynote speakers will lead the summit: Carlos Gomez, president and CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City  will talk about the role of business and education in the Hispanic community. Kenji Yoshino, the Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law at New York University, will make and address on civil rights.
