“one course specifically focused on ‘activism’ by requiring students to supplement their classwork with an activism project”
The implementation of a social justice curriculum took less than a decade and it didn’t happen by accident.
Campus Reform reports:
‘Social justice’ majors, courses, events are new norm on college campuses
Social justice majors and other social justice-themed activities are becoming an increasingly regular occurrence on college campuses.
But it’s not just on college campuses. As recently reported by Campus Reform, the University of Michigan School of Education is partnering with a local Detroit school district to open a social justice high school. Now that social justice education is expanding beyond college campuses, Campus Reform takes a look at other social justice initiatives. Here are some stories you may have missed:
1. ‘Social justice fest’ promotes sex work advocacy, boycotting Wendy’s
Brandeis University held a week of various social justice events, including one that taught how to advocate for sex workers and another that attempted to persuade students to boycott the popular fast-food chain, Wendy’s.
Other events at the “DEIS IMPACT Festival of Social Justice” included “Phyllis Bennis Speaks: The Marginalization Of Gaza And The West Bank” and “Reading God and Torah From a Transgender Perspective: A Talk with Joy Ladin.”
2. You can MAJOR in social justice at this nearly $70,000 per year Calif. School
Dominican University in California has added a stand-alone social justice major that will begin to accept students this upcoming fall. The school suggests “Journalist/Photographer/Filmmaker,“ ”Community Organizer,” “Educator,” “Political Campaign Staffer,” and even a “Socially Engaged Artist” as possible careers for social justice majors.
A spokesperson from the California Federation of College Republicans told Campus Reform that the “program is for psuedo-educational purposes and pushes a certain political agenda” and that it is “clearly not wise for students to take out nearly $300,000 in student loans just to study social justice.”
3. OWU offers ‘social justice’ major with mandatory ‘activism’ work
Ohio Wesleyan University offers a “social justice” major to its students, with one course specifically focused on “activism” by requiring students to supplement their classwork with an activism project.
The major also includes courses on “contemporary feminist theory,” which takes a look at far-left concepts like “marxist feminism” and “socialist feminism.”
