    30th Annual Dwight L. Greene Symposium

    Wednesday, November 2 | Virtual event, noon–1:30 p.m.

    More on the Symposium

    Now entering its 30th year, the Dwight L. Greene Symposium honors the life and work of Dwight L. Greene '70, professor of law, mentor, and friend. Each year, presenters are selected from among Wesleyan's alumni, faculty, and friends who have distinguished themselves in their professions. Presenters discuss topics of importance for BIPOC alumni and the Wesleyan community at large.

    This symposium provides an opportunity to hear from a diverse set of voices while facilitating networking and reconnecting with members of the Wesleyan community. Historically sponsored by the Black Alumni Network and Alumni of Color Council, the symposium serves as a long-standing campus tradition and a time to reflect on where we were, where we are, and most importantly…where we are headed.

    More details on this year's speakers will be posted soon.
