Social Justice Summer Camp for Educators

This three-day summer camp is designed to bring together teams of educators to investigate multicultural and social justice education. Campers will have significant opportunities to discuss social justice issues, both general and specific to their schools, with experts and colleagues, as well as time for individual reflection.

Central topics of the camp will include:

  • The historic development of multicultural and social justice education and key ideas;
  • The nature of privilege across identities and how privilege impacts policy and practice in schools
  • The ways in which school policies foster inequity and how to reform such policies.

Camp offered at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb Campus. Overnight accommodations in New Residence Hall.
