"If you can teach people to advocate for themselves, they learn to advocate for others."

- Septima Clarke, Former Education Director for Highlander Education & Research Center

The Center for Education, Policy & Advocacy (CEPA) is a student power organization which believes in building grassroots power movements to expand the political consciousness of the campus. We train, educate, and mobilize students around issues of education justice in order to shift the dynamics of power and make concrete changes within higher education and beyond.
