“This project will support the growth of student leaders who participate in Affinity Groups and Peer Restorative Justice. In addition, this project will support the trauma-responsive practices of UPA staff members through professional development sessions. Finally, this project will support the Tier 1 advisory classes that all UPA students take through curriculum development to support conversations and actions around identity, race and SEL needs and elevating student voice.”
