SOAR Presents:

Empowering Students & Communities

SOAR is teaching a course this Fall 2021!

This seminar is focused on empowering, affirming and developing student leaders who are from historically underrepresented and under-resourced communities. The course will focus on the use of their skills and strengths to lead their own lives, during and post degree attainment. Incorporating topics such as agency, advocacy and civic engagement students will create & implement ideas for social change that will impact student lives.

Students will engage in discussions, readings, and self reflection to develop ways to impact their community. This seminar wIll challenge students to think critically about power and privilege and how social justice is structural change that increases opportunity for those who are least well off politically, economically, and socially.

Students will learn the historical and contemporary understanding that social justice is grounded in the values and ideals of equity, access, and inclusion for all members of society, particularly for poor communities and communities of color that historically and structurally have experienced social inequities.
