Social Justice

Social Justice encompasses all the internal things that we may (or may not) be experiencing in our lives. It is about examining and recognizing privilege, power, and oppression within our society. It’s about all the things we should be talking about, but don’t.

Our office is committed to talking about these things to educate and empower our students so they may advocate for themselves and/or others. We want to recognize and bring light to what is occurring in society today. Instead of just focusing on our differences through diversity, we want to dig deep and focus our attention on raising awareness and understanding oppression, acknowledging one’s role in that system, and committing to develop skills, resources, and coalitions needed to create lasting change. Join the conversation through any of our social justice programs.
