2/2/2018

In honor of Black History Month, Cumberland University’s Doris and Harry Vise Library staff are presenting a speaker panel on Feb. 8, “#CUintheLibrary: How My Past at CU Helped Shape My Future," featuring Cumberland University alumni as well as a trustee.

The panelists are Dr. Andre Churchwell, chief diversity officer for Vanderbilt University Medical Center and CU trustee; Gloria Caples, assistant director of marketing for Auburn University’s athletics department; Darryl Taliaferro, executive pastor of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Nashville; and Brandi Coates, education assistant for the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. CU’s Assistant Professor of Business and Program Director for M.B.A Studies, Timothy Rose, Ph.D., will be the moderator. 

“We are proud to have such distinguished guests for our #CUintheLibrary event. They each have a unique point of view, but they all want to share with our students what an education can do for them going forward,” said Ashli Wells, library technical assistant.


The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Vise Library at Cumberland University, and is free and open to the public.
