Given the events of last semester, and the importance of connecting our academic and coursework to how we live our everyday lives as members of the Southwestern community, the RES program committee has created this year’s Symposium to look inward at our community, and to hear from our community about what it is like to navigate Southwestern as a person of color.

The Symposium will be a panel discussion with representatives of the faculty, staff and student communities.

Participants are:

Dr. Alicia Moore, Cargill Endowed Professor and Chair of Education

Dr. Rico Self, Assistant Professor of Communication

Dr. Jennifer Leach, Director of Advising and Retention

Santiago Rocha, Health Educator

Jorge Castillo, President of HALO

Kellie Henderson, President of the Black Student Union
