Social Justice Resources at the Center for Leadership, Equity, and Excellence
The Center, through its 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 surrounded 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:
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.

The Solidarity Lounge (S-Lounge) is a space created by and for Students of Color. Used both formally and informally as a gathering space, the S-Lounge is the home-away-from-home for many students. The S-Lounge frequently hosts student group meetings, discussions, films, receptions, and events. A prayer/meditation room is also available in the S-Lounge for use by people of any faith, religious, or spiritual practice, as we see this as an integral part of social justice work. The S-Lounge also houses 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. Allies are also welcome.
The Solidarity Lounge was created after a year of intensive activism and broad-based alliances. It 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.
