Can You Hear Me? Real Talk Among Women of Color

A Discussion Group for Undergraduate and Graduate Women of Color- Registration Period

Women of color face a unique set of challenges in higher education. This weekly discussion group will provide a space for undergrad and graduate women of color to identify and explore their academic, social, and familial experiences while providing and receiving support from each other and building community. Meetings will open dialogue around multiple aspects of identity including race, gender, class, orientation, ability, etc and the experiences associated with these identities on campus. Topics  may include: developing relationships with partners, friends and family; adjusting to undergrad and graduate academic life and changing community contexts; exploring racial, gender, and other aspects of identity; building community and peer connections; negotiating interpersonal and institutional conflict; identifying and addressing academic challenges and goals.
