Outreach and Engagement Initiatives
The social justice element of our discipline requires that we make strong connections with our communities through service learning initiatives and outreach. We have a rich history of activism throughout our department including change brought forth by faculty, graduate students and undergraduates both on and off campus. Our goal is to enrich these efforts by encouraging our undergraduate students to apply their feminist scholarship through engaging experience with their community. This provides hands-on experience that will strengthen their skills, develop leaders, and enhance long-term career opportunities. We have asked local organizations to partner with us on ways we can support their current programs and initiatives.
