Social Justice Summit

Overnight Experience 

The Social Justice Summit, now in its seventh year, is an event designed for ISU students aimed at providing them with the opportunity to increase their awareness surrounding issues of inclusion and to develop action plans that will assist them in being agents of change on campus. Guided by the staff of the Student Activities Center, the Department of Residence, the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, and the Margaret Sloss Women's Center, this day-long workshop will give you the chance to learn more about yourself, engage in discussion with other students on a variety of issues, and create strategies for implementing social change! The 2018 Social Justice Summit will be held Friday, March 23 - Saturday, March 24. *Registration is free and open to ISU students.

Social justice is the continuous process of eliminating ignorance and prejudice through education and advocacy to bring about greater equity among all members of society and ensuring every dimension of identity is not oppressed by society as a whole.  Social justice is a process in which we strive to eliminate the roots of oppression  through education and the redistribution of resources, opportunities, and responsibilities. In the pursuit of social justice we must use education as a tool to empower the people so that we can eliminate  the oppression of all. Acting as one we must create an open, equitable, and just society.
