The #MeToo Movement, the Black Lives Matter Movement, immigration, healthcare, and LGBTQ+ rights: many of the defining issues of our time are part of a broader debate over how we define social justice and equality.  The social sciences can illuminate the relationships between individuals and society at large, helping us to understand these debates and the underlying social and cultural factors that drive them.

Join us for a panel with faculty from American Studies, Criminal Justice, Political Science, Sociology, and the PACE Program discussing the connections between social justice, their academic disciplines, and how they came to their careers. A Walter Center career coach also will be on hand to discuss careers in the NGO and Non-Profit sectors more broadly.

All of this and free pizza too!
