Although not all students may notice the diversity on CSU’s

campus every day, it is here and very important. The Diversity

Summit at CSU will be taking place through Thursday this week. This

is a great opportunity for the students to become more aware of

diversity on campus and something that should not be


The summit is offering different programs and features all day

throughout the week. We urge students to stop by between their

classes. We all need to know more about existing diversity here on

campus and learn about other cultures, especially those that we go

to school with every day.

Today from 6 to 9 p.m., Edward James Olmos, Monfort

professor-in-residence, will be giving a keynote address in the

Lory Student Center Main Ballroom. Olmos has stared in “Stand and

Deliver” and directed “American Me.”

From noon to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, poet Nikki Giovanni will

host a brown bag luncheon, poetry workshop, book signing and

keynote address.

There are other ways to get involved in the diversity on campus.

There are student organizations and advocacy offices that are more

than willing to inform anyone who it interested. Advocacy offices

in the LSC will host open houses from 3 to 5 p.m. Anyone can get

involved, regardless of his or her heritage.
