The Speak Series is a series of listening sessions where students communicate with administrators to share their experiences with diversity, equity and inclusion and to call for systemic change. The series has three parts; a Speak Out where students speak and administrators listen, a Speak Back, administrators reflect what they heard at the Speak Out and share with students the changes that can be made and when the changes can occur, the Speak Together enables the community to be in dialogue to examine what is working, what needs to be kept, and the things that need to be changed.
The Speak Series is a continued partnership between students and administrators to bring about model communication, accountability and systemic change.

Be About it Act NOW!: Caucus/Affinity Spaces
Be About it! Act NOW! is a series of identity-based affinity spaces for the SUNY Plattsburgh community. These spaces provide a brave space for dialogue in understanding racism and unpacking how we perpetuate racist behaviors.
Social justice initiatives will continue to push and challenge the campus community to become more open-minded, progressive, and aware about communities inside and outside of SUNY Plattsburgh.
