Don’t miss the last Convocation in Claremont!

Featuring Jade Aguilar, Vice President of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at Willamette University.

Convocation is an annual gathering at the start of an academic year where students are welcomed and celebrated, faculty don their regalia, and a vision is cast for the coming year.

This year, Dr. Jade Aguilar from Willamette University will serve as our keynote speaker, and refreshments will be served immediately following the event on the Mudd Theater patio.

Dr. Aguilar works to advance Willamette’s commitments to be a more equitable and inclusive community and serves as a professor of Sociology and Women’s and Gender Studies.

Her scholarly areas of interest/work are in the intersections of gender and sexuality with race and class.  Aguilar grew up in New Mexico and has lived across the Mountain West. She has a Ph.D. in Sociology and a graduate certificate in Women’s Studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
