Open Dialogue

During Orientation, incoming students packed the house in Vasey Theatre for a special performance by the Association for Change and Transformation.

Based on actual Villanova students’ experiences, the Touch of Diversity skit challenges prejudices, encourages uncomfortable conversations and provides space for first-year students to discuss allyship at Villanova.

Since its inception 17 years ago as the senior thesis project of Sean Camoni ’99 CLAS, the skit has continually earned a spot as the highest-rated and most memorable workshop of the Orientation program.
