Social Justice Educator Training (SJE)

SJE is a professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff and graduate students to further diversity awareness, knowledge and skill sets. We will explore “social justice” via personal and institutional lenses to analyze: power and privilege, discrimination and prejudice, inclusion and equity through the multiple social identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, nationality, ethnicity, ability (physical and mental), religion, etc. This process will include open and honest discussions, readings, and interactive/experiential activities in a respectful environment. The eight-hour training which is divided into two days is facilitated in a small-group setting. For more information and to register for session
