Social Justice Initiatives

Student Leadership and Involvement's area of Leadership & Service seeks to provide Social Justice Programming to the University of Memphis community to help students explore critical social issues through an intercultural lens. This programming will seek to empower students to challenge injustice and pursue equity in today's world. Specifically, these programs will seek to encourage ongoing dialogue about the intersections of students' identity with other social identities, provide avenues for advocacy around pertinent issues affecting a multitude of communities, and to educate the campus and local communities on the richness of racial histories and cultures. This area also organizes opportunities for students to learn with and serve local communities in ways that deepen their knowledge of and support all cultures.
