Change How You See, See How You Change

Homecoming weekend gives us an opportunity to come together as a community at Roberts Wesleyan College and remember what inspired us to be the people we are today where friendship and scholarship transformed us to make an impact on the world we live in.

This year, internationally acclaimed photographer Rick Guidotti will be on campus to talk about transforming the way we perceive people living with genetic, physical, intellectual and behavioral differences, and how we can be a more inclusive compassionate community. As our mission to provide “education for character” we are excited to see, hear and discuss this as a community of learners!

His photography exhibit “Change How You See, See How You Change” presented by the Golisano Foundation, will be displayed in the Howard Stowe Roberts Cultural Life Center lower level atrium as a centerpiece of discussion for the weekend. This exhibit represents portraits of people from the Rochester region living with intellectual and developmental differences and provides the opportunity to see beyond all labels or disabilities. It celebrates our very own community ambassadors as the beautiful, vibrant individuals they are.

Alumni, community members, parents and students are invited to participate in these events and are open to the public. We hope to see you there!
