Diversity symposium to take place Nov. 3

A Diversity Symposium to explore issues of diversity in classrooms and society will be offered Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on both the Huntington and South Charleston campuses.  The symposium is sponsored by the Graduate School of Education and Professional Development, the Literacy Education program and the College of Education.

The sessions will be held in the Academic Center building on the South Charleston campus and in Smith Hall 154 on the Huntington campus.  The symposium is open to all Marshall students, faculty and staff, as well as public and private school teachers.  Presenters will share a “toolbox” of ideas and experiences to participants to enhance their effectiveness as teachers in K-12 classrooms.

A continental breakfast begins at 8:15 a.m. and lunch will be included at no cost to participants.  The symposium is free, but participants must register by Monday, Oct. 29.  For more information, contact Dr. Isaac Willis Larison at larison@marshall.edu.
