Social Justice Days
Oct. 7-8, 2020
Connecticut College was founded to right a wrong. Over the years, we've continued to build on that foundation of social justice, preparing our students and encouraging our community to do their part to make the world more just and equitable.
Now more than ever, it's imperative that we share what we know with others who are working toward the same goal. That's why we're hosting Social Justice Days, a new two-day online program for prospective students who want to learn more about our methods and efforts to right current wrongs.
Wednesday, Oct. 7, 6-7 p.m.
You'll take a special class taught by a member of our faculty in which you'll unpack topics like power, privilege and race. You'll experience the rigor and vigor of a Connecticut College classroom while enhancing your own understanding of—and approaches to—fostering inclusivity.
Thursday, Oct. 8, 6-7:30 p.m.
On day two of the program, you'll learn more about social justice within the larger context of higher education. In addition, you'll hear from Conn students about their social justice projects and from campus leaders who work to promote inclusivity, representation and an overall positive experience on campus.
