Diversity & Inclusion Intro

In their roles as civically engaged Citizen Leaders, Lancers engage in significant outreach efforts like cultural immersion trips, social justice leadership summits and the good-natured Walk a Mile in Their Shoes event—in which Longwood men and women don a pair of high heels and walk to raise awareness about violence toward women.

Join us as we explore and share multifaceted, transformative educational programs and activities throughout the Longwood community to better understand how to advocate, support and value historically underrepresented students and groups.
