Striving Toward Equity

"Having this space is going to be powerful for all of us to reconnect and be able to share with students that I was there, too, and this is how I navigated some of the challenges and this is how we can help guide you through your next four years."

-Jeronima Nix.

Now with a sizable network established, the founding leaders are officially introducing the RWU Alumni of Color Network to the greater alumni community. Borkai and Nix are serving as co-chairs and Husband as alumni advisor. Read the full story of the Alumni of Color Network launch.
