Diversity Breakfast rescheduled for Friday, April 10


The annual Diversity Breakfast, postponed last month because of cold, snowy weather, has been rescheduled for Friday, April 10, in the Memorial Student Center’s Don Morris Room.

“We look forward to this exciting affair as we continue to recognize the importance of diversity and the richness of inclusiveness at Marshall University and around the entire globe,” said Maurice Cooley, associate vice president of intercultural affairs.

Dr. Eduardo Pino, associate professor of pediatrics at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, and the medical director of the Pediatric Intensive Care unit at Cabell Huntington Hospital, will be the keynote speaker.

The theme for the event, which will run from 7:30 to 8:50 a.m., is “We are the World.” Marshall’s Diversity Breakfast was started in 2001 with the intent of promoting campus harmony and unity.

Special music will be performed during the breakfast by the Marshall University Jazz Ensemble, directed by Dr. Martin Saunders, associate professor of trumpet and jazz studies.
