Posted on 15 October 2012 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Tusculum College hosted the fifth annual G.L.I.M.P.S.E. Diversity Student Leadership Conference Oct. 12-14, an event designed to empower student leaders to be effective in their roles as multicultural change agents in their communities. Students from Centre College and Maryville College as well as those from Tusculum participated in the conference. Two Tusculum students presented and led individual sessions at the conference, Jabari Bunch and Alexander Spivey. Bunch, a senior biology major and creative writing minor, presented during a session addressing how homosexual males are perceived and treated in the African-American culture. Spivey, a senior majoring in creative writing, presented during a session about hip-hop and its impact on society and culture. In addition to attending topical sessions, the students from the three colleges had the opportunity to get to know one another through a series of activities, above, and to express their creativity during an open-mike session. Tusculum students organized and led many of the activities with the Office of Student Affairs.
