Dinner and Dialogue Series With Terry Ann Joseph

The Dinner and Dialogue Series allows for informal conversations between university students and faculty, staff, or administrators of color over dinner. The purpose of the dinner is to provide an opportunity for students to hear from faculty, staff, and administrators of color about their life experiences, careers, successes and challenges in an intimate setting.

Terry Ann Joseph is a first generation college student who began her studies at Adelphi University as a nursing major in the School of Nursing.
