Irwin W. Steans Center

Welcome to The Steans Center

The Steans Center, Egan Office, and the ABCD Institute stand firmly against police violence targeting Black Lives, policies that promote systemic racism, and institutions that condone white supremacy.  We are committed to working toward, and reflecting upon, change in solidarity with those who struggle in our communities for freedom, justice, and equality.
