Bengals Dare to Care 2020

Bengals Dare to Care is traditionally a day of service for the Buffalo State community in partnership with local organizations, hosted by President Conway-Turner. To keep our students and community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bengals Dare to Care 2020 has been reformatted to a monthlong experience to demonstrate Buffalo State’s commitment to social responsibility, community building, and social justice.

Members of the campus community are invited to join President Conway-Turner in Bengals Dare to Care 2020 to learn, engage, and take action on racial justice.

Each week will focus on a topic, feature a virtual speaker event, provide additional resources for engaging in the issue on a local level, and list ways in which individuals can take action.
