Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

You are cordially invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Our Beloved Community Symposium, a day-long celebration of Lafayette's demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion. The symposium is scheduled for this SaturdayNovember 16 in the Kirby Hall of Civil Rights, beginning with registration and continental breakfast at 9:30am and continuing until 3:30pm. You do not need to pre-register to attend; simply show up at Kirby on Saturday morning and stay as long as you can for an engaging and informative day of events, including interactive workshops, faculty presentations and peer-facilitated conversations.
In addition to current students, faculty and staff, there will be approximately 80 prospective Lafayette students in attendance. They are coming to campus from all over the country to witness first hand examples of the outstanding opportunities that exist at Lafayette, in classrooms and beyond, for students to advance their cultural knowledge, awareness and skills. The conversations are much richer when there are current students present to share their personal stories and experiences, so we hope you'll show up!
Many prospective students are coming from far away regions and we are still recruiting a few Lafayette students who are willing to host them overnight. If you are interested in hosting a student, please contact Taaha Mohamedali at as soon as possible. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there.
Best regards,
Taaha Mohamedali
