I Am Enough: Resilience in a World that Says You Don't Matter
with Alvin Sturdivant, EdD

Tuesday, October 29, 2019
12:30pm-1:30pm | Pigott Auditorium

Alvin Sturdivant, EdD, Vice President for Student Development, will engage us around notions of belonging, voice and place. This includes examining the effects of oppression and discriminatory practices in college communities and exploring the experiences of students of color and African American men in higher education. Sturdivant holds adjunct appointments in the College of Arts and Sciences, teaching courses associated with multiculturalism, the deconstruction of hate in the U.S. and abroad and race and ethnicity.

Provost Shane P. Martin and Sturdivant have joined forces to strengthen our educational mission consistent with Seattle U’s Jesuit values. As we pursue a more holistic approach as a comprehensive university, this will provide an important opportunity to learn from one of our noted leaders around inclusivity, equity and belonging.
