Social Justice Living-Learning Community
The Social Justice Living-Learning Community (LLC) is a program in which freshmen, who are interested in social justice and social change, live together in a community, participate in shared courses, enjoy fun and spiritually-enriching activities outside the classroom and engage in service-learning opportunities.
As a member of the Social Justice LLC, you will:
- Receive a $1,000 stipend -- available only for the 2021-2022 academic year.
- Have conversations about social change and the role of activism, civic engagement and leadership
- Move in a shared residence hall early with other living-learning community peers
- Engage in community service opportunities

By joining the Social Justice LLC, you'll connect with a group of students from different majors and different walks of life who share your interest in social justice. These students will become your classmates, hall mates and friends. You will be on the same floor in the same residence hall, take two courses together each semester during your freshman year, and participate in theme-related discussions, special events and exclusive opportunities available only to students in the Social Justice LLC.
