Commitment to Diversity & Social Justice

Designed within a social justice framework, our language arts and humanities curriculum aims to broaden scholar perspectives and develop informed global citizens. We challenge scholars of all ages to think critically about equity issues in our society relating to race, class, gender identity, sexuality, and ability.
