Canes for Change

Faculty and staff Educational Partners (EPs) help plan events on and off-campus, encompassing various social justice topics. Students who participate in Canes for Change will explore their identity, develop a greater appreciation for others’ identities, examine current affairs, explore various social justice topics, and articulate their experiences clearly.
