By providing engaging programs that create safe spaces for students of multiple social and cultural identities, our aim is to foster an inclusive and equitable learning environment for all members of our Husky herd. We hold lecture series and social events throughout the academic year. There are many activities for student involvement, including discussion groups, Husky Connect, and becoming a Safe Space advocate. Visit us and our lending library in CDI.
