First Friday Festivites

Come to the Pacific Islander Studies Initiative’s series focused on providing spaces to build community and awareness around issues that matter to Pacific Islanders every first Friday of the month.

What is

Our full name is the School for Cultural and Social Tranformation, but that’s awfully long, so we’ve adopted the nickname Transform. We feel like it embodies what we are, do, and feel.

We are a new college home for the Divisions of Gender Studies and Ethnic Studies, who share cutting-edge concepts, faculty, and (in the future) space. Our goal is to forge the wave of the future for the study of shifting sexualities, changing genders, dynamic immigrations, and emergent struggles against all racist thought and actions.
