The Office of Diversity Programs and the Department of Housing are pleased to be able to offer an outstanding training opportunity for Student Affairs staff to increase their multicultural competence in the area of social justice. The goal of social justice education is full and equal participation by all groups in society.  

The learning outcomes of the training are as follows:

  • Understand what social justice means for our campus and why Georgia Tech is committed to developing an inclusive campus environment for all staff and students
  • Engage in authentic conversations about the dynamics of difference on campus
  • Recognize the breadth of diversity on campus and explore our own social group memberships
  • Discuss the common campus dynamics for members of marginalized groups and privileged groups
  • Deepen awareness of the types of noninclusive situations that occur on campus
  • Explore current practices, programs and policies that create inclusion, and begin to discuss  ways to create greater social justice through our respective responsibilities
  • Understand the role and responsibility of all staff members to create culturally competent programs and services that support the success of all students

Dr. Becky Martinez, a faculty member with the Social Justice Training Institute, will serve as the facilitator.
