Interns Ignite Change

At Villanova University, an English course titled “Narrated Lives of the Undocumented,” provides students the opportunity to examine the lived experiences, conditions and histories of undocumented immigrants as represented by those who were or who remain without legal documentation in the United States.


Last Seen: Voices from Slavery's Lost Families

The Last Seen Project, a collaboration between Villanova History researchers and Mother Bethel AME church, is uncovering thousands of newspaper ads placed by emancipated slaves looking for loved ones after the Civil War. Last month, the Department of Theatre and Department of History presented a dramatic reading of the ads during “Last Seen: Voices from Slavery’s Lost Families, followed by a panel discussion.

Students, faculty and staff throughout the college are participating in research and academic initiatives relevant to diversity and inclusion.
