What kinds of projects do students do in the Social Action Capstone Course? Diana Cleveland (class of 2020) has a passion for social justice issues surrounding access to higher education. Through Capstone, Diana developed a program to help at-risk high school students with completing college applications and financial paperwork. With Diana's support, these youth made important steps in achieving their dreams of becoming college students. Diana's program was such a success that, at the conclusion of the semester, she continued weekly meetings with approximately 20 students, and she got the support of another JU student. Diana is an example of how Capstone students build their passions to make a difference in our community.
