Association for Change and Transformation (ACT)
The Villanova University Association for Change and Transformation (ACT) formerly known as Diversity Peer Educators (DPE’s) strive to educate the greater Villanova community on the dynamics surrounding social identity, power, privilege, and oppression as well as the "isms": racism, “ableism”, classism, sexism, and heterosexism. In order to achieve a greater sense of equality, friendship, and openness for each Villanovan. ACT works to eradicate all forms of prejudices and stereotypes on campus and to instill multicultural maturity and acceptance through education through interactive workshops and dialogue style delivery. ACT enhances student's lives by making the Villanova community aware of the uniqueness of those around them, by refining students, and by setting positive examples for the community, while promoting a society of acceptance and equality on Villanova's campus.
