(AUSTIN, Texas) 9.30.13 — Huston-Tillotson University President and Chief Executive Officer Larry L.

Earvin will be joined by HT’s Roderick L. Smothers, Ph.D., Vice President for Institutional Advancement; William “Teddy” McDaniel III, President and Chief Executive Officer, Austin Area Urban League;  Gregory J. Vincent, Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin Vice President and Leonard Moore, Ph.D., Associate Vice President, both in the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement.

The Brother to Brother dialogue mirrors a series of conversations between Earvin and the student body as part of the Ram Dialogue initiative that has covered topics ranging from guns on campus to dining choices.
