Social Justice Concentration

社会正义集中是为希望探索公平问题的学生设计的, whether focused on economics, 比赛, 性别, the environment, or any host of justice concerns. 学生可能会因为对公民权利和人权的兴趣而被吸引到这个集中, 包括但不限于反贫困工作, healthcare, food insecurity, prison reform, or voting rights. 这种集中包括学术和行动主义. 学生需要修一定数量的课程来完成学业要求, 并有望参与和领导活动. These will include school-based clubs, presentations to the school community, service rooted in social justice, and a capstone project. 

集中的目标是鼓励学生通过行动主义参与当地和全球社区, volunteerism, and learning. 然后,他们将成为索伯里的领导者,负责教育和组织. 学生还将学习与社会正义相关的合格课程. Ultimately, 对一项事业充满热情的学生将能够加深和扩展他们的知识, 然后与索莱伯里社区分享.
