Activism. We’ve seen it, we’ve heard of it, but how has it changed in today's connected electronic society. The platform of activism has shifted due to the role of social media outlets. The speed in which a post can make it around the world compared to a newspaper is infinitely different than the way it was even 10 years ago. Social activism has changed the role people play, participate, plan and develop rallies or sit-ins. How does this type of activism work in this new world of technology and how does it pertain to our students experience on campus. This session will also include a panel of student participants that will speak about their experience on campus related to social media and activism.
