Hear Dr. Daymond Glenn − scholar, author, and founder and senior pastor of The Cultural Soul Project church − speak about reimagining diversity work in higher education to transform systems, structures, and institutional culture.

At the Cultural Soul Project church, Dr. Daymond Glenn's ministry exists at the intersections of race, faith, hip-hop, and justice. Before founding The Cultural Soul Project, Dr. Glenn held senior level administrative and faculty positions at various colleges and universities, and some of those positions included: Vice President of Student Affairs, Chief Diversity Officer, Tenure Track Professor, and Faculty Administrator. As a professor, Dr. Glenn has taught undergraduate and graduate level courses focusing on urban education, deconstructing multicultural education, race and education on academic achievement, educational theory and philosophy, and critical hip-hop studies. Additionally, Dr. Glenn is an alum of Portland State University, and the author of the book Critical Condition: Black Males and Multiculturalism in Higher Education.

We hope you’ll save the date and join us in honoring the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This event is presented by Global Diversity and Inclusion
