CWRU’s Social Justice Institute launching pilot course for proposed new social justice minor

The Social Justice Institute recently received approval to launch the pilot introductory core course for its proposed Social Justice minor. The minor is under development by a multi-school team of faculty.
The course, SJUS 100, will begin in spring 2012 and will focus on three questions: What is social justice? Why does social justice matter? What can be done?
It will encourage students to think critically and expansively about the social world and the conditions of humanity, providing a foundational exploration of social justice concepts, issues and remedies. Students will develop the necessary analytical skills to assess inequality and injustice and address historical and contemporary issues.
Faculty from different schools and departments will be involved in the course.
