NECPA Social Justice Academy

Friday, 24 January 2020 (All day)
Inspired by the ACPA Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice & Decolonization , The Social Justice Academy (SJA) is designed as a learning lab to bring together Higher Education professionals to learn about and promote a deeper level of social justice standards, enhancing and refining our skills and competencies to create greater inclusion for all members of our campus communities and beyond. Over the course of 4 in-person sessions, professionals in all functional areas and experience levels will explore personal and social identities, learn about the dynamics of privilege and its role in society, build a deeper understanding of ACPA's Racial Justice & Decolonization Framework, and create tools to become a change agent on their home campuses."
