Voices of Justice LLC

The Voices of Justice Living and Learning Community invites you to take an active stance in your own learning, your own engagement in American culture, and in the politics of everyday life.

Our first-year immersion experience takes a lively, hands‑on approach to engaged learning by:

  • combining history, political science, religious studies, critical thinking, and research addressing local and global problems
  • meeting and interacting with scholars, activists, community organizers, and experts from local regional advocacy groups
  • modeling effective oral and written communication skills that encourage individuals with diverse opinions to engage in democratic, meaningful, and transformative dialogue
  • seeking out multiple answers to the thought-provoking questions, such as: 
    • What is American Studies? 
    • What is public policy? 
    • What is "responsible citizenship?
  • promoting human rights and dignity through community-based collaboration

Our faculty team is committed to putting our beliefs into practice, and our wide-ranging backgrounds and experiences will offer you unique opportunities to explore issues of:

  • personal belief
  • historical social movements
  • effective modes of contemporary action
  • long-standing religious traditions that empower social justice
  • means to evaluate effective civic engagement
