Social Justice Leadership Minor
The minor in social justice leadership engages students in an exploration of policies, power dynamics, institutions, and structures that promote and hinder equity and processes of change required for social justice. Students will examine various forms of injustice such as sexism, racism, classism, ableism, and environmental degradation. The minor is grounded in three pillars — a theory component, a leadership component, and experiential learning activities. The minor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing on disciplines such as anthropology, education, English, history, philosophy, political science, social work, and sociology. After completing the curriculum, students will have gained a historical perspective, theoretical understanding, and applied leadership skills. The minor certifies students' knowledge regarding, and commitment to, social justice leadership, which will be useful in postgraduate pursuits.
