Student Social Justice Training Institute 2013
University of Massachusetts Lowell
July 17-20, 2013
The Social Justice Training Institute will provide an 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. Students who attend the institute will be given the opportunity to explore the identities that make up who they are and better understand the extent to which these identities impact all they do.
Through facilitated activities and exercises along with small group dialogue, participants will engage in conversations that will challenge and support them in their journey toward understanding how they can each - individually - impact our global community. The institute is open to 50 undergraduate students on college and university campuses in the U.S. and abroad.
Cost is $495 which includes registration, lodging, and meals. Free ground transportation options will also be available. Please check www.sjti.org in the upcoming weeks for more information on important dates and deadlines (application deadline in April), tentative schedule, lodging accommodations and travel suggestions.
