Student of Color Leadership Conference

GLCA Student of Color Leadership Conference at Kalamazoo College

Twenty-seven “K” students (see photo) joined Associate Dean of Students Karen Joshua-Wathel and traveled to the 2011 GLCA Student of Color Leadership Conference at Allegheny College (Meadville, Pennsylvania). The group shared a ride with students attending the conference from Hope College.

“A diverse group of keynote speakers provided insights across a range of topics and interests,” said Joshua-Wathel, including recent research and development on matters of access, justice, leadership, and sustainability.

Workshop sessions also focused on experiences, strategies, observations, and practical actions that, together, said Joshua-Wathel, “will help students better understand the world they will inherit as future business leaders, community activists, scholars, healthcare and legal professionals, artists, politicians, and servants to society.”
