About the Program
The 'Staff as Students of Social Justice' (SSSJ) Program(link is external) is an opportunity for up to 25 staff per semester (from the Division of Undergraduate Education and beyond) to audit an American Cultures course and participate in discussions about timely and important topics. Piloted in Fall 2020, the SSSJ Program is a unique opportunity to learn first-hand from leading scholars and American Cultures instructors about the intersections of race, ethnicity, and gender; dig into subjects of personal interests; and build connections with faculty, students, and fellow VCUE colleagues.
Participants participated in a final group project and presentation at the conclusion of the semester. Below are the final projects for the Fall 2020 Cohort.
