Overview

Brief Program Summary: Social Justice Education (SJEd) at IUPUI finds ways to help the community explore issues of power, privilege and oppression in an effort to create a more equitable campus, city, and world. SJEd collaborates across IUPUI to bring programs, facilitations, and trainings to students, staff and faculty; some of these stand on their own and others are integrated into already established courses, retreats and trainings, and professional development series.The Social Justice Scholars is a program that focuses on student-led programming for the entire IUPUI campus and is designed to provide passionate students with an opportunity to develop programs based on their interests. Students are selected by their commitment to social justice and interest in providing a welcoming place for all students at IUPUI.
Success Metrics: The impact of the work done by Social Justice Education (SJEd) and Social Justice Scholars extends beyond the 17 students who make up the Social Justice Scholars to include the classrooms into which they are invited to conduct panel discussions, do workshops and retreats, IUPUI staff, faculty and students walking by the Democracy Plaza boards, attending an open mic discussion, annual conference and the thousands who attend the Tunnel of Oppression program every year. These initiatives have the potential to impact over 50% of marginalized students and dominant culture students at IUPUI.
