Perspectives: A CHSE Series

In the College of Human Sciences & Education, we believe sharing perspectives is an important part of diversity, advocacy, & civic engagement. It contributes to our College's vision of improving quality of life across the lifespan.

The Perspectives series provides an environment in which students, faculty, staff, and community members can collaborate to educate and inform, foster inclusion, and empower others to become changemakers in the community.
