Diversity and Social Justice Resources, The Center for Leadership, Equity and Excellence 

(DSJR)

The Center through its Diversity and Social Justice Resources provides leadership, resources, and social justice educational opportunities for personal and systemic transformation. We believe that through these resources we can move our communities beyond awareness to institutional and cultural change.

As part of our ongoing efforts to engage the campus and sorrounded community in the fight for equity and justice, we offer a variety of spaces and formats for engagement. Just a few of the past events we have held include:

  • Social Justice Retreats and Summits
  • Film Screenings and Discussions
  • Experiential Workshops
  • Healing Circles 
  • Self-Care Spaces
  • Panels with academics, activists, artists, etc. 
  • Conferences 

We are committed to interweaving social justice through all that we do in a manner that is intentional, strategic, and sustainable. The social justice resources and programs are rooted in a strength-based and liberatory framework, which is grounded in intersectionality, practicing wellness, and nurturing affinity, ally, and solidarity spaces.

Through our department you can get involved with issues such as:

  • LGBTQIA Rights
  • Disability Rights
  • Gender Equity
  • Enviornmental Justice 
  • Undocumented Student Rights
  • Issues facing People of Color
  • Issues around Sizesism and Body Shaming 
  • And many more.

Solidarity Lounge

The Solidarity Lounge (S-Lounge) is an inclusive space for students of color and their allies. Used both formally and informally as a gathering space, the S-Lounge is the home-away-from-home of many students. The S-Lounge frequently hosts student group meetings, discussions, films, receptions, and events. The S-Lounge also houses two computers and is used between meetings as a study space. The Solidarity Lounge is open daily from 8:00 am until 10:00 pm. To suggest S-Lounge programs or ideas or for more information, check online or send us an email

The Solidarity Lounge was created after a year of intensive activism and broad-based alliances. The Solidarity Lounge opened in September 2003 as an empowering space for Students of Color and their allies. Today it remains a space where different groups and individuals can come together to build community.
