Undergraduate Information

The Social Justice Program is home to the Social Justice Minor and organizes innovative community and campus events to address the pressing social and economic issues of the 21st century. The Social Justice Minor is designed for students who are passionate about being engaged citizens and effecting change locally and globally. To this end, students will be exposed to global perspectives on social movements, conflict resolution, environmental stewardship, critical theory, and grassroots organizing.

Student Learning Goals

Earning a Social Justice Minor will make students competitive for graduate school as well as for jobs in NGOs, public health, political office, community leadership, and in the ever-increasing number of modern corporations that seek employees who are committed to sustainable and ethical vocations. We create learning opportunities that emphasize an integrated understanding of the social, political, economic, and cultural dimensions of the major challenges facing humanity in the new millennium. By cultivating engaged and informed citizens, we seek to create future leaders who will have the skills and knowledge necessary to effect meaningful change.
