This spring semester the Office of Graduate Studies in Villanova University’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences proudly presents a series of community discussions titled “Intersectional Reflections.” Events in the series will celebrate the diversity in Graduate Studies and will invite us to explore the influence of our own identities along our academic journeys and how we can be allies to those who do not share our identities.
The Intersectional Reflections Kickoff Dinner Discussion will officially launch this series of community conversations, which are aimed at providing the graduate students of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences with an in-depth and intimate look into the identity experiences of members across the graduate community. The opening event will feature a discussion with Dr. Terry Nance, Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Chief Diversity Officer and Professor of Communication at Villanova University.
Join us on Friday, Nov. 10 from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. in Garey Hall, Room 10A for great food and conversation as we celebrate our champion for diversity who will retire at the end of this year. Learn from her story as we launch a series about how to successfully navigate graduate education and professional development experiences in spaces where your identities may be minoritized. Seating is limited. Please register here.
Other planned reflections for the 2023-2024 academic year:
- Reflection #1 (February 2024): AAPI, BIPOC & Hispanic Identity
- Reflection #2 (March 2024): First Generation Student Identity
- Reflection #3 (Early April 2024): LGBTQIA Identity
