We envision growing a committed group of student owners to form communities of learning and scholarship. As a student owner of the CNS, you will receive a 20% discount on the sliding scale pricing on live webinars and 12-week courses offered by the CNS.

Student- and faculty-owners design curricula, certificates, and activist scholarship research agendas.
