Leadership and Diversity: Why Asking Difficult Questions about the Past is Good for the Present and the Future 
Dr. Erin Kempker
Shattuck Hall Gallery, 1st Floor

This session will introduce how students and faculty who engage in historical inquiry answer questions that they have about the past. They "tell the story" of a significant aspect of local history and, in so doing, develop important skills and knowledge that help them gain "real world" experience and expertise. The difficult question these students asked was "Who desegregated MUW and what was their story?" The answer was not an easy one, and didn't always make them comfortable, but it was important for the development of the university community and themselves.
