Celebrating Positive Identity and Resilience
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 Celebrating Positive Identity and Resilience.
As Cabrini University enters its 61st year, Mother Cabrini's work with diverse immigrant populations continues to serve as an inspiration for the campus. Cabrini Day 2018 will embrace the Cabrinian tradition of fostering the positive identity of people from all backgrounds and promoting resilience through the empowerment of others.
As a follow-up to last year's excellent student participation, we would like to see this day represent student creativity and imagination with a strong connection to various forms of creative expression that promote positive identity and resilience!
Prize money to donate to a charity of choice will be awarded as follows -
GROUP: 1st Place $100, 2nd Place $50
INDIVIDUAL or SMALL GROUP: 1st Place $100, 2nd Place $50
