On February 5-9, Carondelet and De La Salle students participated in several events designed to address the difficult topics of sexual harassment and assault, domestic abuse and human trafficking.

Carondelet's RISE week was developed in responseto One Billion Rising, which began in 2012 as an international movement to end rape and sexual violence against women.

Students were encouraged to "RISE" with one another and commit to fostering a worldwide culture of respect, inclusion, solidarity and empowerment.

RISE Week culminated in a fun and powerful school-wide "Break the Chain" dance in the Amp. Watch the video below and check out the full photo gallery.

How do you begin imagining the kind of science, technology and innovation center that will equip young women for careers that don't yet exist? Ask the experts.

Carondelet has recruited a diverse group of advisors from the most successful tech companies and the most respected university faculties to help design a truly unique STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and Innovation Center for students. The Advisory Council was launched at the IBM Watson Center in San Francisco this summer, and subsequent workshops with advisors, faculty and students have explored curriculum of the future and how to design flexible space for maximum innovation.
