More social justice warriors being trained at universities, this time it’s at Iowa State University:

Iowa State University recently held a “Social Justice Summit” in an effort to “create strategies for implementing social change.”

The summit was guided by staff members from the Student Activities Center, the Department of Residence, the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center, and faculty from the Social Justice Certificate in the School of Education.

In addition to being “able to articulate concepts and terminology related to social justice,” ISU expects participants to come away from the summit with the ability to “recognize their own…privilege, power, and oppression” and articulate how those concepts “operate within the [ISU] community and larger society.”
