This year’s CaSES Summit featured the work of over 200 students in 6 courses – a week of innovative student ideas for social change. Thanks to all the professors, visitors, and most of all the students who brought this event to life with their insight, research, creativity, and commitment to social justice.
Each team from Sociology advanced a strategy for change based on qualitative and quantitative research and deep engagement with their own communities; many engaged local leaders in their neighborhoods to design and refine their proposals. They tackled issues including gentrification and neighborhood change, wage gaps, educational inequality, media representations, and more.
This is sociology in action: these ideas were created to be shared, and many students are now working on implementing their proposals. Please read below their original presentations, strategy proposals, and pictures from the event and reach out if you want to help them take their ideas forward.
