Do you have an interest in social justice, creating an inclusive campus climate, and becoming a social justice leader on campus? If so, you are encouraged to apply to be a participant in an upcoming social justice leadership retreat that will be held January 29 to January 31, 2015 (location TBD, possibly on the Oregon Coast). The retreat is designed to (a) examine structures of privilege (race, class, gender, sexuality, etc.) and their effect on our campus, (b) provide individuals with the skills to be effective allies and social justice leaders, and (c) provide students with the opportunity to discuss and identify ways to foster social justice on campus.
Organized by a broad range of faculty and staff (Social Science Professors, Center for Civic Engagement, Center for Peace and Spirituality, Graduate and Undergraduate Student Activities, and Alumni Relations) this retreat ultimately strives to create an affiliation of diverse members the Pacific University community (including undergraduate and graduate students) that will be engaged in discussions throughout the year about social justice at Pacific. If you are interested in the retreat, please use the following link to complete an application: https://pacificu.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_5pDMxDEB5SdVkt7
