Diversity Day Celebration at Nyack College in New York City

A “Diversity Celebration Day” will take place at the Nyack College New York City campus in Battery Park on Friday, September 21. This one-day event for Nyack’s undergraduate students will include guided tours in the morning led by Nyack faculty at the National Museum of the American Indian, the African American Burial Ground, the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Registration is required and can be completed by students online. Buses will leave the Rockland County campus from Boon Campus Center at 8:00 AM and will leave New York City at 3:45 PM.

In the afternoon, “The Implications and Effects of Diversity Within the Nyack College Community,” is the subject of the Diversity Celebration Convocation. Dr. Vilma “Nina” Balmaceda of Nyack’s Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement will serve as a moderator for the faculty panel discussion featuring Dr. Lyndell O’Hara, College of Arts & Sciences; Prof. Willana Mack, School of Music; and Dr. Jeffrey Garcia, Nyack’s Ancient Judaism & Christian Origins program.

True to the mission of educating men and women who will be thought-leaders and world-changers, Diversity Celebration Day promises to connect students with the visionary leadership on multiculturalism embraced by Nyack’s founder Dr. A.B. Simpson when the institution was established in 1882.
