Unity Week is a campus-wide effort that affirms the diversity represented within the Cabrini community.
The project is a collaborative effort by student leaders, clubs, faculty, and College departments to coordinate a diverse series of programs.
The schedule includes fun events, music, performances, workshops, speakers, and opportunities for dialogue and community building.
Unity Week—managed by the Office of Student Diversity Initiatives—celebrates the vitality that our diversity affords us, through individual and collective experience.

All events are free, unless noted otherwise.
