As a member of the St. Edward’s Social Justice Living Learning Community (LLC), you will join other highly motivated St. Edward’s students and faculty from a variety of majors who share a passion for creating a more fair and equitable society.
In the Fall semester, Social Justice LLC students take a one-hour seminar, designed to introduce interdisciplinary perspectives on the social justice theme, and one of five linked courses from across the university. The linked courses will include content on social justice that can include, but is not limited to, analyses of systematic racism, sexism, heterosexism, colonization, investigations of socioeconomic disparities and their implications on health, the environment, and standards of living, and examinations of cultural oppressions that take place in society and through societal and cultural institutions.
The Social Justice theme will also be interwoven in the co-curricular programming as well as service learning and community engagement. And you can look forward to many activities throughout the year to balance the demands of study with the need for recreation and relaxation.
