What are our students saying?
- “The Cultural Wealth Dialogue session was extremely insightful. We spend our lives and careers evaluating a variety of things; however, we rarely truly evaluate ourselves. This led to an in-depth self-evaluation about what my true values are in comparison to others and how these values would potentially translate to or align with my future career prospects.” -George
