Online Event

From the Event Page:
Creating lasting change to combat systematic racism and inequities.

In his historical ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King implored, “this is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism,” and that there is a “fierce urgency of now.” This message still holds true nearly 60 years later. And, as a coalition, CUMU is committed to working with members to act now through critical learning, dialogue, and actionable strategies.

Join CUMU on August 13 for a live, virtual forum where four CUMU presidents and chancellors will discuss where we go from here.

This moderated discussion will discuss why it is imperative to move beyond powerful rhetoric, share methods of personal and institutional accountability, explore new and promising ideas, and most importantly spur continued dialogue and commitment to fostering a successful environment for all students, faculty, staff, and community members.

Panelists include CUMU executive committee members and CUMU member presidents and chancellors from public, private, religiously-affiliated, and minority-serving institutions.

Katherine Conway-Turner, president, SUNY Buffalo State College
Thomas Parham, president, California State University, Dominguez Hills
Paul Pribbenow, president, Augsburg University, Minneapolis, MN
Kristin Sobolik, chancellor, University of Missouri-St. Louis
