BAN Meets with College Board of Trustees - February 21,2015
BAN members meet with the College Board of Trustees to fully engage as Proud Knox College Alumni and create a supportive network for current and future Black Knox students. Black students on the Knox campus comprise 7% the 1,420 student population and are competitive scholars and active in athletics, student government, and a host of other campus activities. Black alumni are very interested in partnering with the college administration and trustees to facilitate needed conversations and the development of measurable objectives that can be accomplished within the near future. We support the students and we look for opportunities to work with the administration towards meaningful cultural advances on the college campus.
BAN encouraged the college consultant, Dr. Alma Clayton-Pedersen, to reach out to alumna Dr. Nicole Rousseau, class of 1995. Dr. Rousseau is a renowned scholar of structural and institutional roots of race, class, gender and sexuality inequalities. We believe her knowledge of current events on campus combined with her professional experience will provide Dr. Clayton-Pedersen with a valuable resource.
