Despite equality and justice being core pillars of our nation, we have been challenged by the unfulfilled promise of these ideals – especially in the face of a diverse society, where systems have been designed to benefit some, while disadvantaged others. This course will explore historical roots of systemic oppression through current policies and practices, such as the recent decision to undo affirmative action. Together, we will examine the difference between equality and equity, reflect on individual identity and institutional practices, and explore our roles in the journey toward justice.
This discussion course anticipates that students will actively participate in class conversation, break out rooms and workshop activities each week.
