Institutional Networking Events

Several VIH scholars at different VIH institutions have organized network events.  For example, at the Temple University Reunion Dinner, twelve Viras from the 2012 cohort to the 2019 cohort met in Center City Philadelphia to enjoy Japanese food together, to reminisce, and to plan for the future!  If you are interested in hosting an institutional networking event, contact the VIH Director.

Cultural Coaches/Guest Speaker at Retreats

For both the spring and fall retreats, we welcome 25+ VIH alumni back as Cultural Coaches, Roundtable Facilitators, and Guest Speakers.  If you are interested in returning to a retreat in any of these capacities, email the VIH Director.

VIH Podcast

VIH launched a series of podcasts for current scholars and alumni.  If you are interested in collaborating contact the VIH Director.


As part of the VIH Program, past VIH scholars are paired with current VIH cohort members in a formal Mentoring Program.  If you are interested in giving back as a Mentor to a new VIH scholar, please contact the VIH Director.
