Upper School Symposium
The Wardlaw+Hartridge Upper School Biennial Symposium
The Wardlaw+Hartridge Biennial Symposium was first established in 2013 with a day long event focused on the issue of Human Trafficking. Since its inception, every other year a committee of students and faculty come together to craft and present a day-long Upper School symposium centered around a global issue. Planning includes pre-symposium advisory activities, professional development for faculty and staff, and developing an engaging learning platform for all Upper School students.
Past topics include:
2013 - Human Trafficking
2014 - Conflict Resolution
2015 - World Hunger
2017 - Inclusive Communities: Refugee Crisis
2019 - Inclusive Communities: LBGTQ, Gender and Identity
2021 - Inclusive Communities: Race and Identity
Our school values a supportive community and one way we can become more supportive is to learn to respect and care for the many identities that walk our hallways.
This is something that's going on around the world. It's always better to know more about the world around you.- Divya Mehta
