The 28th Annual UNH Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute: The Truth Telling Project, featuring arts and advocacy, begins. While this project commemorates the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it is also part of UNH’s ongoing work to build a safe, equitable community in which all community members succeed and thrive. The Truth Telling Project invites us all — students, faculty and staff — to engage in conversation to mend race relations and build a better UNH. We encourage faculty to consider how The Truth Telling Project might contribute to spring courses. View the full list of rograms in the MLK Tribute series.
Vernon Wall: With Liberty and Justice for ALL: Our Continued Role as Social Justice Educators
Friday, Feb. 2, 1:30 – 4:30 p.m., Theater II, MUB
The term “social justice” is being used (and misused) on college and university campuses more and more these days. What are the characteristics of a campus community committed to social justice? Are we doing things in the name of social justice that are not congruent with the true spirit of equity and inclusion? In this program, twelve personal reflections on the current state of social justice education in higher education will be shared as well as an opportunity to assess your campus' successes and challenges in providing a campus environment that is welcoming to all.
