Cabrini Day is an annual celebration of heritage and mission, honoring Cabrini’s namesake, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini.
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. This year's theme is "Food Matters"
This topic is relevant throughout the academic curriculum and will provide an opportunity to investigate the many dimensions of this ubiquitous and essential part of our lives that is often taken for granted.
