Power, Privilege, and Action

This course in particular will examine social identities, mechanisms of privilege and power, and examine action steps to leverage allyship and activism to enact positive social change. This course will ask students of all social identities to examine their own power and the role they have played in societal systems of inequality. This class will, at times, push your comfort zone, and challenge you to examine your day to day interactions and the world around you through a new lens. By the end of the course, you'll be able to critically question issues of race, gender, class, and more with the skills needed to take action if desired.
