Spring 2017: The Justice Issue
What is justice? Does it exist in our society? How do we achieve it? Why does it matter?
We take a look at the big questions of fairness and equity in this issue of Keene State Today – and we do it through the stories of alumni, students, faculty, and staff. We’re pleased to introduce you to some of the ways we seek justice on campus and to some members of the Keene State community for whom justice is not just something to strive for, but an organizing principle for walking through the world.
We asked a recent graduate and a current sophomore to write about class projects they undertook for their first-year Integrated Thinking and Writing courses, which had justice themes. You can find essays by Sarah O’Connell ’16 and Maiah Jones ’20 on pages 6 and 7 of *Keene State Today.** Here, we’ve posted excerpts from their class papers. More about Justice in the Classroom
Faith Foote’s work with Pisgah Legal Services is featured on page 17 of Keene State Today. Read, in her own words, more about what brought her to the law and why she has a passion for making a difference. More about Faith Foote ’07: An Advocate for the Vulnerable
