Nana Konadu Cann

Diversity Outreach Fellow

Nana Konadu Cann, class of 2016, is a sociology major with a Nexus minor in Educational Policy. Her focus is on higher education administration—and supporting students at the college level who are from underrepresented communities. She spent the spring of 2015 studying abroad in Brighton, UK, at the University of Sussex. Upon her return, she completed an eight-week summer internship at the New York City Department of Education. After graduation, she plans to work in the field of higher education and obtain her graduate degree in higher education administration and multicultural affairs.

Nana Konadu is heavily involved in campus life and serves as the social chair and web administrator for the Association of Pan-African Unity, an organization that promotes sisterhood among students of African descent.  Nana Konadu says that, “Being at a women’s college means that we’re all playing on the same team. We all want to see one another succeed—it’s just part of the community here.”
