Social Justice and Diversity Pathway


Coordinator:Laura Vazquez

As a member of our diverse and complex society, it’s important that you are able to understand social issues from perspectives other than your own, separate fact from opinion and be willing to participate in public dialogs in an educated and thoughtful way. Your voice, your perspective are important for positive social change. So prepare yourself to responsibly engage in social decision-making (VOTE!), understand the political and economic processes that guide policy and develop an understanding of people of different social identities.
