Welcome to Voices for Organizing Change in Educational Systems (VOCES)

Florida International University’s (FIU’s) HSI Institutional Transformation Project VOCES (Voices for Organizing Change in Educational Systems) will transform institutional culture by embedding student voice and promoting student agency throughout a coherent collection of activities that directly impact students. Project VOCES refers to our recognition that student perspectives are usually an untapped resource that, when integrated into institutional decisions, have the potential to transform educational systems.

Project VOCES amplifies student ownership by building on ongoing institutional change activities and establishing a program of STEM student leaders. These STEM Voceros (literally, the one that speaks on behalf of others) will be positioned as campus student leaders bringing the student perspective to the forefront and engaging university leadership to re-envision the established norms of power and decision making at FIU.
