Members of the SUMA student body will be meeting with SUMA’s administration to work on how to address inequity and racism within our curricula and academic structures. We join many students & faculty on campus who want to see this change.
Please fill out the survey below. We need your input in order to discuss, critique and work through the various ways that we as graduate students in the SUMA program might be able to support a deeper understanding and practice of social equity and environmental justice.
