The University of Mount Union will host the thirteenth annual Not Another Statistic Diversity Conference on Saturday, November 7. This year's conference theme, Getting Into Good Trouble, is something we hope will inspire all who attend to learn and grow together at the conference and then go back to their respective communities to live out the change they would like to see while encouraging others to do the same.
