Social Justice Program

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, critcal theory, and grassroots organizing.  Earning a Social Justice Minor will make students competetive 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 commited to sustainable and ethcial vocations.

The Social Justice Program works to connect our campus to the Front Range community through internships, collabroative research with local partners, and by hosting speakers, trainings, and events that promote transformative dialogue and intellecutal growth. We create learning opportunities that emphasize an intergrated understanding the social, political, economic, and cultural dimensions of the major challenges facing humanity in the new millenium.  By cultivating engaged and informed citizens, we seek to create future leaders who will have the skills and knowledge necessary to effect meaningful change.
