Our Mission: To prepare students through a social justice framework to be leaders who address critical challenges of our times.
Justice, Community and Leadership (JCL) is an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes issues of equity and social responsibility. Our social justice framework uses multiple empirical and theoretical perspectives and contemporary pedagogies of community engagement to inspire lifelong leadership and service for the common good, especially in education, law, government and advocacy. This program serves as the primary course of study for students pursuing careers in education and non-profit or community advocacy work.
(Prior to May 2014, this program was known as Liberal & Civic Studies.)
