Promoting positive change on campus and off, CLU’s Center for Equality and Justice integrates coursework, public service, and community-based research to encourage activism in areas of social equality, economic justice, and diverse cultural identities. Political science professor Jose Marichal’s community development class, where students identify and aid community projects needing assistance, is just one example. The Center also hosts events like panel discussions, film screenings, and performances while fostering campus/community partnerships, opportunities for service learning, and socially conscious internships. As the Center’s director, sociology professor Adina Nack, explains, “We look to students for inspiration and suggestions but also work to challenge them to consider their roles in affecting positive social change.”
