Ways to Get Involved

We offer programming that gives you the chance to learn about the experiences of others, make connections across differences and engage in conversations surrounding current events.

SPEAK UP, a university program which stands for Social Justice Programming, Engagement, Action, Knowledge & Understanding People, works to involve you in social justice conversations. Events are created and facilitated by your peers and range in topics related to social justice, diversity and inclusion. Attend events like social justice coffee hour or keynote speakers and workshops.
