Nationwide protests in the wake of the killings of George Floyd and other Black people have brought renewed attention to longstanding issues of racism and social justice. Talking about race can be difficult, but with curiosity, knowledge, and empathy, it’s possible to come together as a community to listen, learn, and work for change. Three community conversations on "Talking about Racism" will take place virtually on 10/1, 10/8, and 10/15.
Join the Conversation! Presentations with Q&A will take place each THURSDAY EVENING from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. via ZOOM.

The decision as to when or whether Marywood University physically closes campus will be made in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH). The DOH has the right to close a business/institution, should an outbreak occur. Another possibility would be if the cases per capita at Marywood are higher than Lackawanna County. Marywood's Cabinet would make that kind of decision in conjunction with the PA DOH.
