Students as Agents of Change on Campus

Today’s students are taking the lead to create change at their colleges and universities—in the curriculum and cocurriculum, policies and practices, facilities and student services, and campus climate and institutional priori­ties. Some of these efforts are entirely student led, while others involve partnerships among students, faculty, staff, and administrators working toward shared goals, including increased support for equity, inclusion, global citizenship, environmental sustainability, campus safety, and all forms of diversity.
