Our Diversity Peer Educators are a remarkable group of student leaders who have been trained to facilitate conversations on social justice, diversity, and LGBTQ identities.

Mital is also a member of the Journey program through The Office of Student Leadership and Involvement.

Michelle Wallace
Class of 2016
Michelle Wallace graduated from Framingham High school in 2012 and is now a sophomore at Suffolk university. She is a psychology major and political science minor in hopes to understand the human side as well as political aspects it takes to contribute to a better world. She became interested in ideas of equality and empowerment when she attended a charter middle school which built up philosophies to live by, not just to learn by. It wasn't until college, however, that she found out there was a name for the ideas she held so dear: “social justice.” Michelle has spoken at a number of events around Massachusetts on topics from her life long approach to learning to transitioning to college as a legally blind student. Currently Michelle is a Diversity Peer Educator here at Suffolk and hopes to continue this through her college career. She strongly believes that knowledge and exposure are important keys to change and hopes to continue to promote these ideas on campus.

Amy Kerr
Class of 2016
Amy is a sophomore at Suffolk University majoring in psychology with a minor in history. Here at Suffolk, Amy is very involved in co-curricular activities, being a part of the Journey program, president of the SU Rainbow Alliance and a Diversity Peer Educator. Amy enjoys spending time with the Suffolk Performing Arts Office, having participated in a few shows with them. When not in school, Amy enjoys watching movies and learning random facts. In life, Amy is inspired by the words of Irish playwright and co-founder of the London School of Economics, George Bernard Shaw: “Dying is easy, comedy is hard.”
