Change the Status Quo: A Social Justice Conference
Change the Status Quo is an annual social justice conference hosted by Cal Poly’s Center for Service in Action. The conference aims to challenge social norms and empower students to utilize their education to make lasting social change. By harnessing the passion and drive of students, Change the Status Quo empowers students to use the Learn by Doing spirit to challenge stereotypes, ask critical questions, and demand solutions.
This year’s conference occurs on February 17 & 18, 2017. Friday Night includes an introduction to social justice topics and a poster session allowing attendees to preview the topics to be discussed the following day. Saturday’s events start with breakfast, a keynote speaker, lunch, a full day of sessions organized by expertise and a closing speaker and resources fair.
