The Center for Service and Community Engagement, Department of Campus Ministry, and the Service Leadership Program in the School of Business co-sponsor a series of workshops on concepts and methodologies around social justice and social change. The workshops will support the spiritual and intellectual growth of participants by developing an understanding of social justice that is inclusive to both faith-based and civic minded motivations. In achieving its aims, the Social Justice & Advocacy Series will embody a mission that seeks to:
• Educate students about the social and political processes that produce systems of inequality, injustice, and oppression within our own community and all over the world;
• link community and civic involvements to broader national and international democratic participation efforts;
• educate students about tools and skillsets that will assist them in addressing community conflicts, community organizing, and responding to social and political inequalities;
• emphasize interdisciplinary workshop collaborations with the university community.
The series is open to students from all academic majors and years. The Spring 2014-2015 workshops will be posted as the Fall Semester approaches.
