Media Advisory – Diversity Conference Change

Due to the weather forecast calling for rain and possible thunderstorms, a change has been made in the schedule for Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Unity March and Celebration event on Thursday, April 20.

If weather allows, participants will still gather at the north entrance of the Student Center at 4 p.m. to participate in a Unity March to show support for international and underrepresented students, faculty and staff. Plans now call for the march to conclude at the Grinnell Hall dining room where the diversity celebration will take place, regardless of the weather, at 5 p.m. The campus-wide event will include remarks by Interim Chancellor Brad Colwell, a barbecue, and music provided by a disc jockey.
