Diversity and Inclusion

Social Justice and Service Symposium

This year, our annual Diversity Day has been reimagined and will debut as the Global Social Justice and Service Symposium. The symposium will be a collaboration between our Global Initiatives, Social Justice and Service boards. Through topics such as cultural competency, the social and physical threats of stereotypes, and multiculturalism, we’ll partake in mini workshops that will each focus on one of these themes. As a special breakaway, the senior class will meet separately and discuss what life after Tower Hill may look like and why it matters to be globally and culturally minded. In addition to our student-led workshops, we're also adding guest speakers to our repertoire this year including Matt Twyman ‘88, Monty Hayman ‘87, Dr. Carol Henderson, Vice Provost for Diversity at the University of Delaware and Chantille Kennedy, who is currently working on a Masters in Philosophy of Education in Professional Counseling at Penn. Through this combined effort, students will have the opportunity to examine current social issues in the hopes of fostering a better understanding of the people around us.
