CHANGE is a sponsored student organization in collaboration with the Wellness Center. CHANGE's mission is to create inclusive and critical spaces to challenge norms, further prevention, and empower survivors of gender-based violence.
CHANGE makers are Loyola students who want to help make Loyola a safer place. They meet regularly to create programming around prevention, awareness, and response to gender-based violence.
