Period Product Drive – Promoting a More Inclusive Campus Project

The Gerber Center, 4th floor hallway, 10:45 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Following a recent study-away program in India in which students studied grassroots activism, the students decided to seek ways to improve the Augustana campus community. Specifically, the project will culminate in a proposal regarding how Augustana can make bathrooms on campus more inclusive of all members of the student body. One of the ways in which students hope to increase inclusivity on campus is to make period products more available to those who menstruate. The drive aims to collect period products or monetary donations. All proceeds will go to Campus Cupboard where students can obtain these products for free.
