Social justice is a goal of every healthy society and the best guarantee for sustaining peace.
Achieving social justice involves the creation a global society where all members are granted the same basic human rights and equal access to public resources.
This Signature Area believes that twenty-first century students need global perspectives on citizenship that are informed by and can contribute to processes of civic engagement locally and in all parts of the world. The Social Justice Minor program encourages our students to recognize how race, class, and gender intersect with citizenship. It reinforces the many ways that our students are already engaged as citizens, and it helps solidify their power to effect change.Social Justice Minor Declaration Form
