Contributed by Judith Pena-Shaff

We have had an outstanding group of Diversity fellows! They have taught (face-to-face and transitioned to online teaching), contribute to their departments, work with students, and completed (or nearly completed) their dissertations within the year. In this Zoom salon, each of them will give us a glimpse to their research and their future.

Please join us Monday April 27th, 2020, 4:00-5:30 p.m. In this research showcase to hear about their work, their plans, and to honor their contributions to Ithaca College.
