The Wolverines for Social Justice & Diversity Residential Community allows students to connect and grow in their understanding of social justice with a community of engaged scholars. Together, members of this community will participate in community service, scholarship, and co-curricular programming, holistically focusing on building their social justice capacity and toolbox. They will learn about systemic oppression and privilege related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, social class, and other intersecting identities, ultimately leaving them more well-equipped to work as change agents in various domains of influence. This community is supported through a partnership with the Intercultural Center.
Advantages of joining the Wolverines for Social Justice & Diversity Community:
- Enhance your understanding of diversity and social justice.
- Engage in intentional programming delivered by staff from the Intercultural Center
- Gain self-reflection skills to recognize, develop your professional self, commit to positive social change and intercultural exchanges.
To apply for acceptance into the Wolverines for Social Justice and Diversity community, applicants must have been accepted for admission to UM-Flint, be a continuing or transfer student at UM-Flint and reside in Riverfront Residence Hall.
