Indiana University supports diversity at 2003 Indiana Black Expo

Indiana University representatives from all eight campuses will answer prospective students' questions and present an educational symposium in conjunction with this year's Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration at the RCA Dome in downtown Indianapolis.

"Black Expo gives IU the opportunity to remind people of the educational experience we have to offer," said IU Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Support Frank Motley, who will be in attendance. "We want to make certain that minority students and their parents in Indiana and throughout the country know about the high-quality academic programs and services we have at all of our campuses."

High school and continuing students who are curious about IU's admission requirements, as well as its cultural and academic support programs, will have the opportunity to speak to IU faculty, staff and current students at the RCA Dome from Friday, July 18, through Sunday, July 20. IUB will also present a three-hour symposium, targeted at rising juniors and seniors, called "I am IU: An Exploration of Black Student Life," on Thursday, July 17, at 5:30 p.m. at the Urban League, 777 Indiana Ave. in Indianapolis.

This is the third year IU's eight campuses have participated jointly in the event. Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis representatives have been regularly involved since Black Expo's inception.

"I am proud of the university's longstanding support of Black Expo, and we look forward to supporting it for many years to come," Motley said.

Indiana Black Expo Inc. was founded in Indianapolis in 1970 by a group of area religious and civic leaders. It is one of the oldest and largest black expositions in the nation.
