We look forward to seeing you at the New Orleans Marriott on June 4-June 6th. As we join the people of New Orleans in commemorating the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and the 50th anniversary of the Higher Education Act, we will explore our individual and institutional responsibilities and contributions to our democracy both in New Orleans and in the communities in which our institutions reside.
