The Diversity and Social Justice Resource Center (DSJRC) serves as a campus-wide hub for resources, networking, coaching, consulting, and capacity building on a wide range of social justice issues.
The purpose of the DSJRC is to increase engagement and inclusion across multiple identities; enhance social equity and institutional access; and co-create and support initiatives that promote diversity, social justice, empowerment, and community.
Three primary aims of the DSJRC are:
1) Providing programs and services that support students, staff, and faculty in building authentic relationships across and within differences;
Social Justice Peer Educators choose a theme every year. This year we will explore the identities and intersections of RACE AND CLASS. We take an intersectional approach to all of our dialogues and understand that we are more than singular identities or experiences.
Events this semester:
