Scholarship in action! The Social Justice, Diversity & Pride LLC will take time to examine the complexities of our individual and community identities by acknowledging that various identities are salient at different points in our lives. This LLC will create a safe space to integrate the totality of who you are into a structured learning environment and facilitate participants understanding of their personal strengths and specialties. Participants should come willing to engage in experiences that tap into the complexities of identity through rigorous discourse. The intersection of identities (ability, gender identity/gender expression, class, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and historical circumstance) will be highlighted as we prepare students to enter into a global workforce with social justice awareness.

Picture yourself…

  • Planning the Social Justice Summit, which occurs on-campus every Fall.
  • Taking walking tours of the neighborhoods around the UWM community
  • Attending films, guest lectures and concerts.

In Their Words

Robert Smith, LLC Instructor
“This semester’s class for the Social Justice LLC is the most dynamic group of students I’ve encountered at UWM. They are full engaged in course material and aware of a myriad of social issues. As a result, they’ve jumped started their academic and professional development in what is only their first year of college.”
