Please join us in celebrating Bulaong and wishing her the best of luck in her new position on Tuesday, June 25 at 3:30pm in the MRC. Refreshments will be served.
Bulaong has accepted a new position as Director of the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity at the University of Kansas. Bulaong will be the first woman of color to oversee the Center and no doubt, bring her brilliance, expertise, and love for cultivating community and joy to her new workplace as she has done here. During her three years at Amherst, Bulaong has transformed the Multicultural Resource Center. She has created and cultivated with her students and specialists, a space of support, growth, community, education, joy, and resilience for students of color and all members of the College. Her legacy will be long lasting and she will certainly be missed.
We look forward to celebrating her time at the College and wishing her best of luck in her next adventure! We hope you will join us!!!
