  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall

University to host State of the State Conference on Thursday

The 18th Annual State of the State Conference will be taking place Thursday in the Union.

Emily Monago, director of Multicultural Affairs, is chair for the conference.

“The event brings together a broad coalition of organizations [and] health industries,” Monago said, “The topics are diverse just like the membership.”

The conference has been around for 18 years, and has been hosted in various locations. This is the second year that the event has been hosted at the University.

“It’s a unique opportunity to discuss diversity inclusion and opportunities,” Monago said.

The event already has 250 people registered.

There will be two keynote speakers. Matt Roloff, from the TLC show “Little People, Big World,” will speak during the luncheon. Baldemar Velasquez, president of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee in Toldeo, will give the closing address.

The conference will last all day in various locations in the Union. The keynote speakers will be in the Union Ballroom.

“This [conference] is really a collaborative effort from different areas of campus organizations,” Monago said.

There is a $30 registration fee for students and $125 for faculty and non-students to attend the event.

Target is offering scholarships to cover the registration fee for students who cannot afford it. Students should contact the Office of Multicultural Affairs for further details on how to apply.

Registration for the event is closed. However, students who want to go can print and fill out the form on the website and take it or fax it to the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
