Change Education Series

The Change Education Series at CapU is a Capilano Faculty Association and employee-led initiative, supported by the University, that unites the CapU community against hate and racism while embracing understanding and diversity.

Why "change education"?

Tammy Murphy, the First Lady of New Jersey, called for more education around climate change to "help create a generation of climate-literate policymakers, data analysts, entrepreneurs, urban planners, researchers, anthropologists, journalists, economists, artists and more."

This series seeks to change education by creating a generation literate in the history and contributions of the ethnic and cultural diaspora in Canada.

CapU is committed to creating inclusive spaces that value everyone's rights, dignity and labour. Join us during the year for learning, dialogue and inspiration as we work together for a more equitable future.

We can’t wait to see you at these upcoming events.

“The Change Education Series was created by CapU faculty in response to anti-Asian racism during COVID-19. That movement has grown to feature Asian Heritage Month, Black History Month and Women’s History Month. Through these and other events, we build unity, celebrate diversity and commit to social justice.”
– Carrie Jung, Instructor and CFA EDI & Professional Affairs Officer
