John R. Lewis College Dedication Celebration

Friday, May 6th - Quarry Ampitheatre - 4:00pm PST

Doors open at 3:00pm 

Join us as we celebrate the renaming of John R. Lewis College in honor of John R. Lewis. John R. Lewis College is UC Santa Cruz’s youngest and one of the most diverse colleges. It is home to a series of robust programs designed to realize its founding themes of Social Justice and Community, all aimed at empowering students to create positive change. We celebrate this momentous occasion with powerful speakers, performances, and a call to action to empower our students to seek justice and create necessary trouble in their educational journey and beyond. A college in John Lewis’ name is a profound honor and a great responsibility for UCSC. This dedication celebration will solidify our commitment to live up to the legacy of Representative Lewis, to answer his call to create a more just and fair society, and to leave the world a better place than we found it. Come be a part of history in the making!
