{expand}Town Hall meetings with President Bean Topics: Inclusion and Reaffirmation of Values

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

I believe that working together to create a culture of inclusion and acceptance makes us a stronger community and nation. By virtue of our name, and our commitment to service, we strive to be a place where the vision and legacy of our namesake remains a constant beacon as we fulfill our capacity as individuals, both academically and personally, and find strength in our diverse range of backgrounds and perspectives.

I understand that in light of the recent election, some members of our University community may be experiencing some concern and uncertainty. To address and recognize that, I will be hosting a series of Town Hall meetings at our campus locations. At the conclusion of the Town Hall meetings, there will be facilitated sessions for those who would like to share thoughts more deeply. Through this process of healthy dialogue, we see a chance to reaffirm our values and commitment to creating an inclusive and accepting University community.

I want to assure you that we remain dedicated to fostering a supportive, collaborative environment at JFK University that respects our diversity of opinion, background, and perspectives. As John F. Kennedy once said, “The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.” Here at JFK University we are proud of having created a culture of dialogue, respect, and engagement that allows us to aspire to that goal and that makes us a truly welcome and accepting place for all students, faculty and staff.

The Intersectionality Of Social Justice In A Multicultural Context{expand}


TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 29  7:00 - 9:00pm7:00 - 9:00pm

Join John F. Kennedy University as Dr. Robbin Rasbury hosts, Dr. Kevin Mclemore, Dr. Kristin Hancock and Dr. Douglas Halderman, who will each share some of their work and findings in the field of social justice.

The purpose of this event is to explore parallels between struggles and recent events that both the African American community and the GLBTQ community have faced.  In the light of the Orlando massacre this summer and the police shootings that have continued for many months it is imperative that we look to each other for support and guidance.  This panel discussion is about exploring ways we can work together toward social justice.                      

This event is free and open to the public
