You Do. Students have a great amount of power and input when it comes to how 
our institution is run— if we assert it. Join us to learn more about the 
history of student activism on campus. From the native student activism that 
led to the creation of Multicultural Student Affairs, to the movement to 
divest the UMaine System from Apartheid South Africa, students lifting their 
voices have asserted amazing power in shaping Maine's public universities.

Join us for tea and cookies, a panel discussion, and a dialogue regarding the 
path forward for USM in the face of ongoing threatened cuts to our programs.
