Canisius College will celebrate Black History Month with a virtual event featuring Mary J. Wardell-Ghirarduzzi, PhD, vice provost and chief diversity officer at the University of San Francisco (USF), on Wednesday, February 24 at 4:00 p.m. Register here for the talk titled, A Call to Conversion: Eliminating Anti-Black Racism as a Jesuit Catholic University.
The purpose of Wardell-Ghirarduzzi’s talk is to help Ignatian educators and leaders connect their intent to become an anti-racist university to their impact for reconciliation and justice for the liberation of Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color (BIPOC) on a Jesuit, Catholic university campus. Guided by the universal apostolic preferences, Wardell-Ghirarduzzi will discuss archetypical behaviors that can encourage or prevent reconciliation and justice; and will offer a redemptive framework for students, staff, and faculty to actively fight against anti-Black racism within Jesuit higher education in the United States.
The event is presented by the Canisius College Office of Diversity & Inclusion. For additional information, please call Ext. 2118.
