The Saint Anselm College Inclusion Bulletin is designed to provide information and reflections on campus activities and events pertaining to diversity and inclusion.
A Word from Dr. Diaz
In a world where the only constant, is change, the Saint Anselm Community continues to adapt. Our April Inclusion bulletin highlights a few of the college’s upcoming happenings. This includes the “Reimagining Justice” program on April 6 focusing on how law enforcement agencies can and are taking a different approach to mental illness and homelessness. As Professor Liana Pennington, one of the lead organizers argues, “It is only through having these difficult conversations can we as a society start to really address issues of race, racism, and social inequity in policing in any meaningful way.” This issue also spotlights Assistant Dean of Freshmen & Director of Academic Advisement, Stephanie Fernandez’ perspectives of “home” and conversations to learn about diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Finally, this month’s “Did You Know?” section offers the data and context of the anti-Asian hatred and violence that is demanding national attention. We have Anselmians both on and off campus impacted by this hatred. Join me in expanding our knowledge and deepening our empathy. Read on!
