MISSOULA – The University of Montana’s diversity symposium, formerly known as the Day of Dialogue, will be renamed DiverseU beginning with the 2014 event.
DiverseU will continue to present an opportunity for campus and the Missoula community to engage in educational sessions, exhibits, art and presentations to promote understanding and create community through civil discourse.
This year’s campuswide symposium is the ninth annual event and will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 5. Students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members will explore topics such as race, gender, ethnicity, ability/disability, religion, sexual orientation, class, social hierarchy and privilege. All events are free and open to the public.
