Bryn Mawr Posse Program
Supporting Change in a Time of Action
This month, The Core Bryn Mawr Strike Collective, in collaboration with Sisterhood, Bryn Mawr's African and Caribbean Students Organization (BACaSO), Mujeres*, Zami+, and Mawrters for Immigrant Justice, called attention to the needs for on-going institutional change at Bryn Mawr College through protest and direct action. The Pensby Center for Community Development and Inclusion acknowledges and honors the labor and leadership fundamental to this important time in the history of the College. We appreciate that through the efforts of student leaders, the broader Bryn Mawr community has had new opportunities to listen, learn, and contribute in creative ways to the ever-evolving transformation of this institution.
The programs, activities, and resources of the Pensby Center focus on equity, inclusion, and the building of a meaningful life together at Bryn Mawr. Our very work is rooted in the principles and goals of equity and social justice. By providing resources to address issues of power and privilege, Pensby will continue to work to improve the climate of our campus and enhance community life for students, faculty, and staff.
We stand in solidarity with and continue to commit ourselves to the critical work of dismantling systemic oppression and fostering racial justice and equity. We understand continuous transformation is necessary and affirm our mission of enhancing the Bryn Mawr community for the betterment of all.
