Planning & involvement

Thinking ahead to HS Week 2018

This year Human Sciences Week is taking on a new approach: less is more. Our Student Leadership Team wants to provide well-funded and promoted events to make this celebration one to remember. The week will consist of five main events: one representing each department in the College of Human Sciences. We would also like to include the university as a whole into our celebration because we feel the goodwill of this college is worth sharing.

Please email us if you have questions.
