As the world, and our campus, are confronted with events, actions, images and words that have laid bare deep divisions and injustices in our society, it is important that we not only speak out - but listen and take actionable steps to bring about change so we can, collectively, find ways to heal.
To be a Maverick means to step forward and take on the challenges the world presents to us through honesty, integrity, tenacity and, most importantly, inclusivity.
We want you to find that space where you can not only speak about challenges you are facing, but work with your peers to make important changes - here on campus and beyond. Whether you are a student, faculty member, staff member, alumni, or community supporter, we want to hear from you.
