Dr. Borboa-Peterson explores the transformative power of acknowledging and celebrating the contributions of forgotten diverse alumni who have long been an integral part of predominantly white institutions (PWIs). In understanding their stories, struggles, and triumphs, students of Color can cultivate a profound sense of identity, purpose, and belonging.

This presentation will explore the imperative of bridging the gap between the historical experiences of students of Color and their present-day campus experiences as a means of fostering a greater sense of belonging and empowerment among students. This session highlights an innovative strategy and initiative aimed at connecting students of Color with their institution's rich legacy.
