Being Bryn Mawr: Past, Present, and Future
The fourth annual Community Day of Learning is on March 20, 2018. After spending some time discussing the results of the community survey, the planning committee has created an overarching framework for the day. The theme "Being Bryn Mawr: Past, Present, and Future" will invite students, faculty, and staff to learn about and discuss who we have been as a college, who we are now as members of this community, and how we want to shape Bryn Mawr going forward.
The committee is working on the structure of the day and brainstorming session ideas. Some of these suggestions include: The 1960s in the BiCo, The Legacy of M. Carey Thomas, Being a Women’s College in 2018, First Generation Faculty and Staff, Practicing Inclusion, The Honor Code and Cyber Bullying, and more.
We invite anyone interested in organizing a session to begin thinking about ideas and possible participants in leading a session. The Planning Committee will be in touch immediately after winter break with a call for proposals, and we will also be reaching out to various groups in the community to encourage input and participation.

Comments from the 2017 post-event survey
"I feel so grateful to be able to participate in such an amazing community that puts on such an event. Each year I am wow-ed. ... Thank you. The only constructive feedback I can give is my wish that I could attend more sessions since so many interest me that happen concurrently — and this is a fabulous problem. Thank you again — looking forward to next year!
I thought that the entire day was incredible! What an amazing array of topics/presenters/formats you provided ... there were so many wonderful options that it was difficult to choose. Thank you for providing such a well-planned, interesting, informative ... and, most of all, thought-provoking day for our community!
I love the community day of learning and what it stands for.
It was really interesting to interact with some of the staff whom I, as a student, don't normally interact with. They experience a very different culture within Bryn Mawr, and I think that bringing students, faculty, and staff together is one of the most meaningful parts of the day.
It's too short! There were so many sessions that I wanted to go to, but couldn't. I wish it were a few days long rather than just a day.
