SJICR in Action Program

Mission:

An initiative of the Office of Social Justice, Inclusion and Conflict Resolution (SJICR), SJICR in Action aims to foster emerging leaders in the field of social justice. SJICR in Action provides opportunities and resources for students to create their own solutions to observed social justice related issues in the Rowan community.

This program will provide resources and mentorship needed for individual or small groups of students to effectively plan, promote, and execute programs and events focused on a central theme of social justice. Each semester, SJICR will sponsor three (3) to six (6) student-led projects. Students wishing to complete an action project must complete an application and project proposal in order to be considered for allocation of resources and mentorship.

SJICR in Action emphasizes the role of students in contributing to the culture of inclusivity at Rowan University by shining a spotlight on their existing ideas, talents, and strengths. Students will receive unique opportunities to develop essential career-readiness and leadership skills in preparation for life in a rapidly changing and developing cultural environment.
