Event Date and Time
University of Maryland, College PArk

The campus is holding its first Social Justice Day on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, with the theme:

“Growing Social Justice for the Public Good”

The all-day event will involve faculty, staff and students from the entire College Park campus. In addition to a keynote speaker at 9 a.m., the day will center around two interactive sessions in which participants from all parts of campus will be able to demonstrate the many ways -- through research, teaching, and community involvement -- that the University of Maryland is committed to social justice. The day will end with a conversation, summary, and next steps from the day's interactions (3:30 - 5 p.m.).

This year, the day is being organized around five social justice themes:

Immigration in the 21st Century
Economic Development and Inequality
Environmental Justice
Creating Healthy Communities
Media and Inequality

Growing social justice for the public good
