Community Scholars Program 50th Anniversary Exhibition
Curated by Anne Sullivan, Former Senior Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Georgetown University
Founded in 1968 as a direct response to the racial justice crises of that year, the Community Scholars Program led Georgetown’s efforts to promote social justice by enrolling a more racially and socioeconomically diverse student body. Today, the Community Scholars Program is housed in the university’s Center for Multicultural Equity and Access (CMEA) and has evolved into a nationally-recognized program that supports the success of a broad range of students from communities that have historically been denied access to higher education.
This exhibit will offer visitors the opportunity to reflect on aspects of our history that have led the university community to this celebratory moment.
