JagNation: A Culture of Care
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to step in and help - but didn't? You are not alone! Most people want to help, and to do the right thing, but sometimes social barriers and ambiguous situations get in the way. As a student-led, staff supported campaign, JagNation: A Culture of Care is focused on creating a safe and positive campus climate at IUPUI through acts of kindness, bystander intervention, and school spirit.
We're not looking for a superhero in a cape to swoop in and save the day. Sometimes small actions can prevent big problems. Share kindness, share respect, and pay it forward on a daily basis!
