Diversity Advocacy is pleased to announce Illinois State University’s Annual Black and Latino Male Summit, which provides a forum to support and equip men of African American and Latin descent with the tools necessary to thrive in society. The goals of the Summit are to raise awareness, create a sense of camaraderie, discuss issues pertinent to both cultures, and cultivate opportunities to build coalitions. This year’s theme is A Different Shade of Color: The Pursuit of Happiness, which will focus on five pillars: accountability, ambition, authenticity, resilience, and vision. There is no cost for the program. Students will meet at the Old Main Room at 9:00 am to begin the day.
The keynote speaker is Manuel Salgado who is currently a pre-doctoral student intern currently in Student Counseling Services. In addition he is presently in the process of completing his dissertation, titled "Investigating the Effects of Student Engagement on Latinx Community College Students". He will share his story and journey to the audience.
