February Newsletter

Change Created!

The Creating Change Conference went off without a hitch! Our NEIU student representatives were given the opportunity to attend a myriad of informational sessions. Topics centered around racial justice, forms of discrimination, and how to implement techniques to accommodate the intersecting identities of all of our dedicated students.

NEIU attendees agree - their lives are more enriched and empowered for having gone.
