For the second year, students, faculty, and alumni participated in the Association of Black Women in Higher Education (ABWHE) Philadelphia Chapter’s Garden Party at Arcadia University on June 2. Dr. Doreen Loury, assistant professor of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice and director of the Pan African Studies Program, organized the event as the first vice president of ABWHE’s Philadelphia chapter.

ABWHE, Inc. was founded in 1978 by 13 women with a vision for an organization that would advocate, support, promote and advance the efforts of black women in higher education, as well as encourage the next generation of higher education contenders. This national organization now has branches across the country, including Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City.
