Social Justice Institute this summer

Cornell College will host the Social Justice Training Institute Student Experience from July 20-23 on campus. What is the Social Justice Training Institute? Opportunity for students to gather and do some “personal work” related to social justice issues. The institute is open to 50 undergraduate students on college and university campuses in the U.S. and abroad. This advanced experience is for students who have done a fairly significant amount of work on social justice issues. The Social Justice Training Institute will provide an intensive developmental opportunity for students to examine the complex dynamics of oppression and to develop strategies to foster positive change on their campuses and in their communities. We invite you to join similar students from a variety of campuses for an experience focused on what we can learn about ourselves, our own identities, and our skills in order to be more effective advocates, allies and agents for change. SJTI Student Experience is the rare opportunity to reflect on our own identities, experiences and impacts, and to focus on what we each can do to better embody social justice.
