Campus Community Participated in March on Washington

September 01, 2020

On Friday, Aug. 28, our UHart student leaders hosted a March on Washington commemorative event. The kick off included a simulcast of the live event in Washington, D.C., followed by a powerful march throughout campus.

Physical therapy major Jasmine Streeter '21 was the driving force behind what was named the "March on UHart". Juil Dajci, President of the Student Government Association, describes the event as a "triumphant success" based on the "brilliance" of Jasmine as well as her dedication to the cause. He also emphasized "the model student behavior" displayed by those who participated as they passionately and safely navigated the march route. 

SGA has since created the Streeter Community Organizing Grant as a recognition of Jasmine's efforts and to "honor her continuous commitment to this work". The grant will provide $1,000 to support a student-initiated event that aims to educate our campus community on social justice issues. 

Representatives from the Office of Student Engagement and Inclusion, the President's Office for Diversity and Community Engagement, Institutional Advancement, Aramark, the Office of Residence Life, the Center for Student Success, Information Technology Services, the Office of Marketing and Communication, Public Safety, Facilities, and many student clubs and organizations came together to support Jasmine and this initiative.
