A visit from Julian Bond

Civil rights leader Julian Bond makes a point during a panel discussion in the Women’s Building that followed his Assembly Series lecture, titled “Post Racial America: Fact or Fiction?” held April 1 in Graham Chapel. Looking on are panelists Garrett A. Duncan, PhD, director and associate professor of African & African-American studies and associate professor of education, both in Arts & Sciences, and Adrienne D. Davis, JD, the William M. Van Cleve Professor of Law and vice provost. Bond’s Assembly Series talk was the keynote address for the Chancellor’s Graduate Fellowship Program (CGFP) 20th Anniversary Conference and Alumni Reunion, held on campus March 31-April 1. Some 20 alumni of the CGFP returned to campus to mark its 20th anniversary. The CGFP, which has 28 Chancellor’s Graduate Fellows studying at WUSTL this academic year, was established at WUSTL to provide encouragement as well as generous financial support to outstanding, diverse students interested in careers as college or university professors. More than 75 Chancellor’s Fellows have completed a graduate degree since the program’s founding.
