Canes for Change
Canes for Change is a residential community where a select group of students, who share a common interest for diversity and social justice, live together. Faculty and staff Educational Partners (EPs) help plan events (on and off-campus) that encompass various social justice topics. Students who participate in Canes for Change will explore their personal identity, develop a greater appreciation for the identities of others, examine current affairs, explore various social justice topics, and be able to articulate their experiences clearly.
