Welcome Mountaineers! In this course we will create a foundational understanding of social justice topics including diversity, inclusion, identity and privilege. The course is designed for students to interact with various concepts revolving around the broad concepts of social justice and for each student to explore their own understanding and connection to the topic. Together we will work to increase the understanding around our own social justice journeys as well as that of others. This course will integrate different classroom approaches to create a working interaction with systematic social justice issues as well as hot topic trends in the current societal conversation. Ultimately, we will work to establish connections between power, privilege, and oppression to formulate ideas and strategies to impact positive societal change in contemporary society. The foundations of this course are designed so that each student, regardless of diversity and inclusion knowledge, will begin to explore and interact with topics important to our overall development.
