Social Justice Studies at Lakeland University

Become an Agent of Change and Transformation

Guided by experienced faculty and community mentors, students earning a Social Justice Studies minor explore the reality and consequences of systemic oppression. They also learn how to respond to those realities and consequences in ways that alleviate immediate suffering and lead to social transformation.

Cooperative Education

Hands-on Learning in the Community through Co-Op

The work of social justice cannot be learned in the classroom alone. One thing that makes our minor in Social Justice distinctive is its deep dive into experiential learning as part of our Cooperative Education program. The pairing of classroom instruction with hands-on experience in justice and service-related contexts enables students to develop their gifts as agents of social change.

Students will receive both course credit and competitive compensation for their experiential learning in the program.
