Student Program

Social Justice Roundtable

When it comes to social justice and community engagement, it can be difficult to know where to start. The issues are big and complex — and sometimes overwhelming. How about starting with a conversation?

The Social Justice Roundtable is a series of monthly dialogues/workshops, developed and facilitated by students, on topics related to social justice, diversity and community engagement. Participants share dinner, take part in discussions and activities and leave with ideas on how they can take action in their communities. Come once or come for the whole series.

Sponsors: Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives (OADI) and Office of Engagement Initiatives.
