This luncheon will take place in Grupp Fireside Lounge on Thursday, March 13, 2014. The Lorch awards recognize persons who have made significant contributions to women and who exemplify the pursuit of liberation and justice regarding sex, gender and sexuality. The 2014 Lorch awards go to:

  • Canisius College Student Award: Vance Stinson (2016: Communication, Human Resources) and Jasmina Tacheva (2014: Economics, Philosophy, German)
  • Canisius College Colleague Award: Richard D. Reitsma, PhD (Asst. Prof. of Spanish & Latin American Studies)

This year’s Women & Gender Studies luncheon will take place from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Due to budget constraints we are respectfully asking that all guests pay $5.00 at the door on the day of the luncheon. We look forward to celebrating the 25th anniversary of the WGS program!
