What is the Social Justice Training Program?


The Social Justice Training Program (SJTP) offers an opportunity for individuals committed to issues of inclusion to develop their skills in the areas of dialogue, connectedness and capacity building. The SJTP experience provides participants an intensive developmental opportunity to examine the complex dynamics of oppression and to develop strategies to foster positive change on campus and in their communities.

Students who participate in the program will explore their own identities and deepen understanding of the extent to which these identities impact all they do. Through facilitated activities and exercises along with peer-facilitated small group dialogue, participants will engage in conversations that will challenge and support them in their journey toward understanding how they can each impact our campus and the global community.
