Social Justice Living Learning Community

The Social Justice Living Learning Community is designed for students interested in better understanding and practicing social justice, and will be located in Roper Hall for the 2014-2015 academic year. In partnership with various campus departments, students will have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of experiences on the topics of civil rights, women’s rights, GLBT rights, and other social justice movements in this pilot program. Some of the activities include:

• Special guest speakers

• Trips to historic Washington D.C. sites

• Social justice skill building sessions

• Faculty/staff-led discussions on current events and trends relating to social justice

• The opportunity to meet AU Alumni working in different movements

The Social Justice LLC is designed to introduce students to live, learn, and explore social justice as a tool to create change. This will be an open gender housing community, providing the option for students to live with the roommate with whom they are most comfortable without consideration to the individual’s sex, gender or gender expression. This community will be open to both new and returning students of all majors.

Interested students can reserve space in the Living Learning Community through the housing application.
