Social Justice in the Age of Mass Incarceration: Global & Domestic Perspectives
Cabrini Day is an annual celebration of Cabrini’s heritage and mission, honoring the College’s namesake, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, and the College’s foundress, Sister Ursula Infante, MSC.
Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate in a day filled with mission-oriented activities. Events for the day focus around a different theme each year.
For more information about this year’s event, contact Andrew Owen, PhD, (610.902.1074).
No Day Classes – A Day of Alternate Educational Programming Educational programming in the morning and afternoon of Cabrini Day takes the place of regularly scheduled classes. Classes resume at 4:30PM.
Full participation in Cabrini Day by all members of the campus community—students, faculty, staff, administration, alumni, and trustees—demonstrates our commitment to the mission of the College.
