"It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness" Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt is at the heart of the Psychology in Action movement; she represents all that is kind, inspirational, socially just, and graciously strong. Psychology in Action is an aspect of Roosevelt Universty that provides an outlet for the campus to uplift the community and to learn from those who we inspire. Through random acts of kindness, volunteering, and donations, we aid agencies in the community and enhance the health of our own Roosevelt campuses. This is not only beneficial to our community, but also it provides our Roosevelt students experiential learning opportunities.
