Alumni of Color Reception

Lawrence University is hosting an Alumni of Color Reception during Reunion Week. The event is meant to welcome alumni of color back to campus, to inform them of all the exciting things happening in the Diversity & Intercultural Center, and to provide an opportunity to meet Dr. Kimberly Barrett.

We welcome you to join us on Saturday, June 15 from 2:30 p.m.-4.p.m. at the Diversity & Intercultural Center in Memorial Hall for an opportunity to connect with alumni of color. The event is informal, so you can come and go as you please. If you are interested to know who is registered for Reunion, please click here. Please reach out to Dakota Williams or Ariela Rosa with any questions. 

Faculty of Color Mentoring Circles

These peer-facilitated groups meet regularly to promote the success of individual faculty. The purpose of the groups is to solve professional problems while also supporting personal development.

The program is based on a model developed in circles involving women scientists in higher education, as described in the book Every Other Thursday by Ellen Daniel. This group model is grounded in radical psychiatric theory which emphasizes self-empowerment. Watch for details to come.
