Diversity Dialouge Speaker Series
In FY 2010, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) implemented the Diversity Dialougue Speaker Series, in which speakers discuss various diversity issues.
The purpose of the series is to create an open, unbiased forum for the exchange of ideas, to enhance the intellectual enrichment of the community, and to create a forum in which speakers foster and encourage creative thought.
