Alumnae Meeting Schedule and Feedback

As an important commitment to ongoing information sharing and discussions with the Chatham community, we are hosting events for alumnae with Dr. Barazzone and members of Chatham’s Board of Trustees. At these events, alumnae will hear more about the challenges facing Chatham College for Women at Chatham University, the resolution adopted at the February board meeting, and have an opportunity for their questions and perspective to be heard in a constructive fashion.

The following events will be held on Chatham’s Shadyside campus and also streamed online for those who are located outside of Pittsburgh or cannot attend in-person. Instructions on how to participate via your web browser will be sent to registered guests via email closer to the date of the event.
