One of the university’s goals is to promote diversity and equality on campus and in the community.

“Diverse U” coordinator Joseph Grady says UM’s annual event is aimed at starting a dialog among students and community members.

He says the best way to do that is through in-person conversations.

“What we are trying to do here is get people away from the computer screen and to engage personally.

Grady says some Missoula businesses help continue the conversation off campus by hosting community discussions.
