Multicultural Summit


"One Better World," a daylong, interactive forum for students, will explore aspects of diversity and multiculturalism.

The Multicultural Summit will help students increase their awareness of issues of inclusion and develop action plans that will assist them in being agents of change on campus.

Special guest facilitator Vernon A. Wall has accumulated 20 years of professional student affairs experience at Iowa State University, the University of Georgia, UNC-Charlotte, and UNC-Chapel Hill. He has experience in Greek life, new student orientation, student activities, leadership development, global education, and university housing.

Wall received a B.A. in Political Science from North Carolina State University and an M.S. in College Student Personnel Administration from Indiana University. In the spring of 1998, he served as a member of the student life staff with the Semester at Sea program, accompanying 600 students on a voyage around the world.

Wall has received several awards for his contributions to the quality of student life, is a nationally known speaker in the areas of social justice and leadership styles, and is one of the founders and facilitators of the Social Justice Training Institute.

The summit will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 1, 2008. It is free and open to all Suffolk students, with space for 40 participants. Applications to participate must be received in the Office of Diversity Services by Feb. 25, 2008.
