What can you do to effect change?

The Social Justice Institute has recently launched a new minor in social justice, open to all undergraduate students.

The minor requires only 19 credits and includes classes such as SJUS 200: Engagement Seminar – Experiential, Community-Based Learning, as well as other interdisciplinary courses from other departments. Students may choose to study one of three focus areas: (1) Ethics, Politics, and Economics, (2) Social Inequality, Power and Privilege, or (3) Social Movements and Change. The SJI also has opportunities for research.

Part of the mission of the SJI is to educate future social justice leaders. With the offering of this new minor, the SJI hopes to instill the knowledge and possibility of positive change and engaged thinking throughout the university.
