The Center for Engagement and Inclusion offers a variety of social justice workshops. These workshops are designed to raise awareness and educate organization leaders, peer educators, and students on topics of social justice. A workshop can also be tailored to the specific needs of your classroom or organization. Workshops include a lecture-style presentation, interactive activities, and question & answer components.
Workshop requests should be made, no later than 2-3 weeks from the presentation date. This allows our team to facilitate the best workshop possible.
