Side View of Perry House

We hope our work will just be the beginning of an ongoing institutional commitment to research, acknowledge, and document the experiences and contributions of marginalized communities on campus, and join us in celebrating this rich history. -Alexis De La Rosa '15 & Lauren Footman '14

To further explore topics of diversity at Bryn Mawr, visit the Pensby Center. The Pensby Center implements programs and activities that address issues of diversity, power and privilege, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, country of origin, class, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation and disability, with a goal of improving the campus climate and enhancing community life at Bryn Mawr College.

Through this office, the staff develops and coordinates leadership development and training programs, organizes key campus cultural events, guides student affinity groups, coordinates college programs to mentor and support students from underrepresented groups, and provides informal advising to all students interested in issues of social justice and multiculturalism.
