Western Illinois University hosted a ‘social justice’ summit of college professors on June 1, officially called the “Social Justice in Higher Education” summit. The purpose of the summit is to be “a gathering of higher education professionals seeking to expand their social justice competency and capacity through guided conversations with experienced student affairs practitioners and guest speakers resulting in practical approaches for both personal and professional skill building.”

In short, it is a university-hosted event to discuss social justice, how to teach and help students practice social justice, and build a social justice skills set.
