ALANAM Intiatives

ALANAM initiatives aims to foster an inclusive environment that promote identity development, intellectual achievement, personal success, and social belonging of students who identify as African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, Alaskan Native, and Multiracial at Elon. Some of the programs/services under ALANAM Initiatives include:

Sisterhood Circle

Sisterhood Circle is a safe space for discussion among women of color across Elon’s campus. With input from faculty and staff, students meet bi-weekly to discuss topics relevant to their experiences at a predominantly white institution. Come meet and talk with your fellow students, faculty, and staff as we take time to discuss things that relate to ALANAM women of color.  We all come from various backgrounds and ethnicities, and we should be proud to recognize that.  If you identify as an individual from an ALANAM group, please consider joining us for Sisterhood Circle!

ALANAM Women's Institute

ALANAM Women’s Institute is an empowering and interactive event catered specifically for women who identify as African American/Black, Latino/Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, Alaskan Native, and Multiracial.  The goal is to create a space where ALANAM women can share their backgrounds and experiences, and together develop a set of tools to successfully navigate issues related to the work environment, relationships, health, self-discovery, and education.

ALANAM Town Halls

ALANAM Town Halls is a support network among student organizations representing ALANAM identities.  Student organizations collaborate on programs and resources, receive leadership development and support from the Center for Race, Ethnicity & Diversity Education, and obtain additional funding and guidance to be used for the purpose of identity development and diversity education.
