CU-Boulder will host the Second Annual Communities of Color and Allies Symposium on Nov. 19, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Coors Events/Conference Center in room 4.

The symposium will feature a variety of diversity issues concerning the campus and other communities, and will include a video teleconference at 11 a.m. titled, “Race Relations in Higher Education: A Prescription for Empowerment and Progress.”

The teleconference will examine how to face challenges involving affirmative action issues and diversity programs. The symposium is designed to offer solutions on how to build campus and community coalitions to make an impact on diversity growth and recognition, according to Dan Raybon, associate director of the Cultural Unity Student Center.

Themes of the symposium will include communicating, collaborating, coordinating and celebrating.

“The symposium will assist the campus in building a multicultural community,” said Raybon.

The symposium is free and open to the public.
