Meet Our Spring 2020 Diversity Advocates Scholars

Jan 10, 2020 11:50:51 AM / by Jessie Gibson

At CAPA, we seek to foster increased student diversity and to provide all participants with the opportunity to explore, challenge and redefine their identities in distinct ways. Launched in Spring 2017, the Diversity Advocates Program (DAP) is an extension of this philosophy and provides resources for advocates to pursue diversity initiatives of their own within their global cities.

CAPA is pleased to announce the Spring 2020 cohort of Diversity Advocates Program Scholars!
