Purpose:w-socialjustice

Scholarship in action! The Social Justice, Diversity & Pride LLC will take time to examine the complexities of our individual and community identities by acknowledging that various identities are salient at different points in our lives. This LLC will create a safe space to integrate the totality of who you are into a structured learning environment and facilitate participants understanding of their personal strengths and specialties. Participants should come willing to engage in experiences that tap into the complexities of identity through rigorous discourse. The intersection of identities (ability, gender identity/gender expression, class, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and historical circumstance) will be highlighted as we prepare students to enter into a global workforce with social justice awareness.
