Social Justice: Theory, Problems and Practice



What is Social Justice? What does it look like? Why does it matter? We'll explore these questions through an examination of theoretical and concrete accounts of social justice and activism, and work together to develop meaningful understandings of the problems and potential of social justice thought and movements. Through the study of social justice issues and cases, we will better comprehend existing social, political, cultural, and economic barriers to social justice and become familiar with strategies to work within and outside of these barriers.

Leadership for Social Justice



This interactive course examines the critical role of leadership in advancing social justice, with emphasis on successful and failed efforts to address social problems such as poverty, oppression, and the fight for civil rights in America. Together we will probe and critically evaluate several theories and models that attempt to define effective leadership for the public good. We will also engage in an evidence-based, case-study analysis of selected leaders, including famous and lesser known social justice activists, political leaders, and social entrepreneurs, in order to investigate the values, traits, and competencies associated with effective and ineffective social justice leadership. Texts and supplemental readings include non-fiction and fictional works examining root causes of social injustice, and the efforts of leaders to produce positive social change. The course also integrates students' community engaged learning experiences as part of the Bonner Community Scholars program.
