"Walking a friend home from a party, donating to a local food pantry or expressing concern for a friend"; whether the task is big or small, your action matters.
Taking action is essential for all of us to make our university a better place. Action Matters is a strategy that helps empower you to act when others stand idly by. It's time for the students, faculty and staff at UW Oshkosh to make this university a better, more tolerant environment through our actions.
