Focused on Social Justice

Graduate receiving diploma

Social Justice encompasses educational, economic, and political, arenas. Social Justice is a commitment to equity and fairness in treatment and access to opportunities and resources for everyone, recognizing that all is not equal. Social Justice means that we work actively to eradicate structural and institutional racism, sexism, classism, linguicism, ableism, ageism, heterosexism, religious bias, and xenophobia. Social Justice means that we as educators are responsible for the collective good of society, not simply our own individual interests.
