Native Tongue Lecture Series
Native Tongue is a lecture series about race and race relations composed entirely of Fort Wayne natives. It is designed to engage the IPFW community around matters of race, while showing our students another pathway to professional success. There will be one lecture per semester, in addition to an on-campus opportunity for presenters to engage high school students from Fort Wayne. This will afford us another opportunity to get potential undergraduates on campus while showcasing our commitment to diversity.
