HWS Impact Explores Student Experiences through Dialogue

Through the exchange of personal stories, ideas and student experiences, HWS Impact brought together members of the HWS community to engage in a collective exploration of campus culture through conversation.

Now in its second year, HWS Impact sought to explore how identities are seen and unseen, and featured student speakers, each relaying a personal narrative. The presentations were followed by small dialogue groups. This year’s student storytellers were Josiah Bramble ’19, Edisson Cabrera ’18, Sophia Melvin ’18 and Ifunanya Okeke ’19.

HWS Impact 2016 was held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5 in Bartlett Theatre.

Last year’s HWS Impact program featured student speakers: Nimer Farhood ’18, Kendra Napierala ’15, MAT ’16, Afrika Nora Owes ’16, Danielle Ramos ’18, Cody Rivera ’17 and Shannon Savard ’15, MAT ’16.

HWS Impact was sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning, the Centennial Center for Leadership, Office of Intercultural Affairs, Student Activities, Hobart and William Smith Athletics, and the Social Justice Studies Program.
