The St. Louis region has the opportunity to become better and stronger through the response to events in Ferguson. Washington University must do our part. We must share, learn, and act. The following are ways to engage on our campuses and throughout the community. Please join us.

Ongoing Events

Tale of Two Cities: Documenting Our Divides Offered by the Sam Fox School in fall 2015 with support from The Divided City initiative, this interdisciplinary course will allow students to produce documentary videos to explore issues of a “divided city.” Open to all Washington University students.

Volunteer to Be a Tutor OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring pairs volunteers with children in grades K-3 to work one-on-one each week as their tutors, mentors and friends. Choose from one of many participating school districts in the greater St. Louis area, including Ferguson-Florissant.
