"WOHESC can be a powerful driver of change in our region. By bringing together students, faculty, staff and other stakeholders to exchange ideas about the current work on sustainability, social justice and diversity, we can propel the discussions to create real, collaborative solutions to seemingly unsurmountable challenges. WOHESC elevates existing practices and while creating a new pathway for advancing sustainability and diversity in higher education."
