Enrique Murillo (Ph.D. ’99), a professor of education at California State University at Bernardino, will participate in NBC News’ “Education Nation” Summit during the week of Sept. 25.

The event, being held in New York City, will bring together policymakers, elected officials, teachers, parents, thought leaders, educators, members of the business community and citizens for a discussion about the challenges, potential solutions and innovations spanning today’s education landscape.

“I’m thrilled to be one of only about 30 people invited to participate as a ‘thought leader’ for this very important event, and one of only a handful of Latinos,” Murillo said. “I very much look forward to the opportunity to share my perspectives on the state of education in the nation and our region.”

The summit will include education programming across NBC News, MSNBC,, CNBC and Telemundo.

Murillo is scheduled to participate in both national television and Internet coverage of the summit.
