The People's Institute

Interested in learning how you can strengthen your approach to social justice by discovering more about your identity? Consider applying for The People's Institute, a weekend long retreat in February (12th-14th) at Loyola's Retreat and Ecology Campus (LUREC). This retreat is co-sponsored by Student Diversity and Multicultral Affairs (SDMA) as well as Student Leadership Development (SLD). Both Sania and Natalie participated last year and would be more than happy to discuss their experiences!
