Millennium Fellowship Project: Eunoia
The purpose of the project Eunoia is to support education reform to address the mental health crisis in the United States.
Within August-December 2020, Eunoia will be a club on the Arizona State University Tempe campus whose sole mission is to utilize academic research, advocacy, and action to promote human rights for the economic, social, cultural, and overall health and well-being of the communities it serves.
The project Eunoia will also serve as a social media platform to foster discussion and support for education reform. Hopefully, through social media, Eunoia will work to widen educational access and outreach as well as form fundraisers and partnerships that result in scholarships/ funds for high school students who do not see college as an affordable opportunity.
The long term hope for the project Eunoia is that it results in the improvement of educational policies in the state of Arizona.
