SOCIAL JUSTICE LEADERSHIP & DIALOGUEThis course is designed for people who have a deep interest in issues related to race, social justice, power, privilege, oppression, intercultural dialogue, and the ways such issues influence our leadership abilities and interests. By focusing on how we learn, think, and talk about social justice broadly, including race and other intersecting social identities in the United States, students will deepen their understanding of structural power and oppression, which result in a false hierarchy of human value. Designed for students who are interested in community-based public service and leadership, this course will support students' development of critical self-reflection and cultural storytelling, as well as techniques to engage in and lead constructive conversations and critical dialogues across differences. Further, it will equip students with the skills to more critically examine their role in perpetuating and disrupting inequitable structures embedded within the culture of public service and community-based leadership.

This Course is eligible for 1-credit of elective credit in the Master of Professional Studies in Community Leadership upon approval of the Graduate Program Director. To transfer credit upon completion of course contact GPD Sally Scott at
