Save the Date! The 2nd Georgetown University Black Alumni Summit will take place from October 20-22, 2017
The Georgetown University Black Alumni Summit is a biennial gathering planned by and for the Black undergraduate alumni of Georgetown University. From October 20-22, 2017, we welcome Black alumni of all classes, schools, eras, professions & walks of life from across the globe back to the Hilltop to reconnect with each other and the university.
Through topical programming (panel discussions, networking and social activities), we will channel the vast and underutilized energy of Black alumni toward a heightened level of community and university stewardship. For more information, please visit http://advancement.georgetown.edu/bas/
A Letter from CMEA Director, Charlene Brown-McKenzie
Spring is finally here—the tulips are blooming, students are bustling around campus, and here at CMEA, we are eager to welcome students for Hoya Saxa and GAAP weekends!
We continue to be engaged on-campus; here are three brief updates:
CMEA kicked off the school year with the opening of La Casa Latina located adjacent to the Black House on 36th Street. We are proud to support La Casa Latina as a place for students to embrace their stories and engage in critical dialogue about the intersectionality of race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender, ability, privilege and power within the Latinx identity.
We also celebrated the retirement of Associate Dean of Students, Dennis A. Williams. During his distinguished 20 year career on the Hilltop, Dean Williams has touched many students, alumni, and staff serving in multitude of roles as a professor, a dean, an advisor, a mentor, and a friend. We are grateful for Dennis’ service to the Georgetown community and CMEA family.
Finally, congratulations to the Patrick Healy Fellowship (PHF), which in February celebrated its 20th Anniversary! Since its founding in 1997, PHF focused on nurturing student leaders who share a passion for addressing issues that affect communities of color through a commitment to service, professional development, and alumni mentorship. We were so pleased to welcome back and reconnect with over 70 alumni fellows. Here’s to another 20 years!
WHERE you can find us!
Save the date for Reunion Weekend and CMEA’s Multicultural Reception on June 3rd from 5-7pm! Celebrate the significant impact of a diverse student body, faculty and staff on the Georgetown experience.
And mark your calendars for the Black Alumni Summit, a biennial gathering planned by and for the Black undergraduate alumni of Georgetown University October 20-22, 2017.
CMEA and its campus partners continue to support vulnerable populations impacted by the new administration. The university launched it’s first website for undocumented students: https://undocumented.georgetown.edu/ We are grateful for students, faculty and staff who saw this resource come into fruition.
CMEA hopes to begin expand its current home on on the 5th Floor of the Leavey Center and reimagine an student centered space that accommodates the over 4,000 office visits each semester by students utilizing services of academic support, multicultural programming and diversity education and pre-college outreach to DC students. Feel free to reach out to us on how you can help.
