  • As a broad term, social justice encompasses a sense of processes and objectives that strive toward a just society for all. This raises the need to critically examine the understanding of social justice and its implications for policy, research, and practice. What does it mean to be a socially justice educator or researcher? What is the role of the social justice advocate? What will enable social justice to maintain its longevity rather than being merely a buzz term? 

    For the 3rd annual conference, the College of Educational Studies invites all emerging scholars to submit proposals on any topic related to social justice. At the conference, emerging scholars have the opportunity to present their work, participate in a roundtable discussion, or submit a poster.
