'Soup and Substance' to honor Black History Month Feb. 13


In another installment of the "Soup and Substance" series, the Central Michigan University Office of Diversity Education will host a presentation honoring Black History Month from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13 in the Bovee University Center Terrace Rooms A-D.

The hour-long event, titled "Then and Now: A Discussion of Personal Student Experiences," will allow student engagement through guided table conversations, said director of diversity education Sapphire Cureg.

It will also feature a presentation from Mary Henley, director of Michigan Gear Up and Pathways to Academic Student Success, about how inclusion has evolved at CMU and highlight resources available today.

The Office of Diversity Education describes the Soup and Substance series as an opportunity for faculty and students to gather in an informal setting for a presentation and discussion on traditionally under-represented groups by members of the CMU community. 

All Soup and Substance events are free to the public. 

Attendees will be served soup and rolls free of charge.
