Emerging Scholars for JUSTICE Living Learning Community
The Emerging Scholars for JUSTICE living learning community is in Tommie North Residence Hall and for students who seek to become engaged leaders in social justice. This LLC brings together students who are interested in creating more equity, promoting diversity, and building power in their communities for social change. Building on foundations in theology, literature, and history, students will explore their identity and culture in its deep contexts. Doing so will prepare them for socially engaged scholarship and leadership that will improve their communities and contribute to the common good, regardless of their chosen major or field.
This LLC is limited to 90 students.
This LLC will create a community together and can choose from one of the three courses being offered. Students will be exposed to experiences through community and civic engagement, leadership development, and pathways to several scholarly leadership programs offered at St. Thomas. These programs include:
