Equity and Social Justice
Have you ever wanted to explore aspects of diversity, inclusion, and social justice in a safe and comfortable environment? If so, Equity and Social Justice is the right community for you. You will be able to look at the roles that race, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, nationality, and other identities play in our current society. Additionally, this community is a place where people can also contemplate the differing perspectives of the world. Supported by an RA who has a specific commitment to the concepts of equity and social justice, this community will participate in discussions, activities, and projects that will contribute to their residential experience. This community is also a "Safe Space" environment and students of varying identities are encouraged to apply. Not a social justice expert? That's ok too. Join a community of peers committed to the exploration of the topic and discover where your voice fits in.
If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values,
we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities,
and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric,
one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.

Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
