Social Justice

Tags:

As a Social Justice student you’ll engage in issues you are passionate about, learn community-building skills, and hone analytical tools to identify and address oppressive and unjust structures as you collaborate with faculty, peers and community leaders.

Social Justice coursework illuminates the larger contexts, histories, and the cultural, political and religious dimensions that form and condition individuals and societies. Central to this endeavor is finding solidarity with marginalized communities, as well as listening to and learning from community members and leaders.
