Events and Programming

The UC-IDEA Committee will lead efforts to identify areas within University College where we can improve, as well as find other areas that we can partner with and influence. The committee will also recommend action steps and markers to assess our progress. Part of those steps will be monthly programs designed to create safe spaces to discuss important issues related to race and social equity.
