November 5, 2014

East College ko Apr2011cDePauw University will host the 2014  Great Lakes College Association Students of Color Leadership Conference, which takes place this weekend (November 7-9).  The theme of the event is "Who Am I?: Navigating the Depths of Intersectionality as a Student Leader and Activist."

"This is a terrific opportunity for DePauw -- where students of color and international students make up nearly 30% of our student body -- to serve as a center for important conversations," says Christopher Wells, vice president for student life. "Our campus will be enriched by the perspectives and ideas students of color from our partner schools in the GLCA will bring this weekend."

Vince Greer, director of multicultural student services at DePauw, adds, "We're delighted to host the conference, which will allow students the opportunity to further explore the many facets of their identity and how that lens steers their activism and leadership styles. We hope that this conference will allow the opportunity for new and reinforced alliances, sharing of knowledge, experience, and identity across groups."
