Identity Based Group Discussions

The Center for Diversity & Social Justice Program (CDSJP) is committed to promoting inclusion and a welcoming community to students of various races, ethnicities, sexual identities, gender identities and expressions, socio-economic classes, religions, spiritual traditions, ages, abilities, and many others. 

In the spirit of Inclusive Excellence, CDSJP is excited to host meet-ups during during July to begin the process of building community among members of the incoming class of 2020. The meet-ups will provide the opportunity for students to engage in conversations about life at Wentworth (opportunities, resources, etc.). Returning students will participate in these meet-ups to share their personal experiences as individuals who are currently in the process of their Wentworth journeys. These students will also answer questions from new students to give their perspective on various aspects of campus and off-campus life. The following meet-ups will be offered: Interfaith Communities, First Generation Students, Queer Students, Students of Color, and Wentworth Women.
