Social Justice Education

The goal of social justice education is full and equal participation of all groups in a society that is mutually shaped to meet their needs. Social justice includes a vision of society that is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure.

The Multicultural Student Center provides workshops and trainings to students, staff, and faculty on topics exploring racial injustice at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Workshops can be requested Monday through Friday, between 10 AM to 8 PM during the academic year.

Workshops explore issues of power, privilege, and oppression, as well as identity/group dynamics, microagressions, and how to create inclusive campus communities.

Requests are accepted dependent upon facilitator availability and the MSC’s organizational capacity. The MSC asks for a commitment of at least 15 attendees by the requesting group. The requesting group is responsible for providing space and accommodations unless otherwise specified.

Please request workshops at least 3 weeks in advance.
