Why Partner With the Cassandra Voss Center?
Who We Are
St. Norbert College's Cassandra Voss Center is a nationally recognized academic center considering issues of identity and inclusion. Our unusual story begins with SNC student Cassandra Voss, a social justice activist interested in gender issues, and her dad Kurt Voss, a businessman. Through time together, they modeled conversations across difference which founds our mission: “transformative thinking for a just world.” When Cassandra Voss died in a 2007 car accident, her father Kurt wanted there to be a space for all people to have conversations like he and Cassandra did. Kurt spent 7 years raising $2.8 million to build the Cassandra Voss Center, among the largest gift totals for a gender center building at any college. We are the sister-center to the national bell hooks Institute in Berea, KY and our core values are: scholarship-driven, welcoming, innovative, fun.
