Overview

The Social Justice Studies program will afford students the opportunity to develop a professional and scholarly approach from which to understand and continue to celebrate the professional, academic, and scholarly contributions of historically and contemporary marginalized human groups. Consequently, students will develop and expand their appreciation for the contributions of marginalized populations in the US and globally.

This Social Justice Studies program is designed to indelibly foster a diverse student body that is culturally competent with diverse insight, skills, and training to work effectively and compassionately alongside both diverse and marginalized human groups, increasing inclusion and equity in an increasingly diverse society.
