Social Justice Education

Established in August of 2014, the Social Justice Peer Educators Project consists of undergraduate students who are hired on as student staff with Diversity Education.  Under the guidance of the Diversity Education Program Coordinator, the Social Justice Peer Educators are tasked with developing and implementing educational programs and trainings for their undergraduate peers, which advance equity, diversity, and social justice.  The Social Justice Peer Educator Project is a multilayered educational program whereby the Social Justice Peer Educators undergo extensive social justice leadership development and mentorship, which trains them in building inclusive community and also guides them in developing social justice educational programs for their peers at WSU.  Examples of past educational programs created and facilitated by the Social Justice Peer Educators include, “We’re a Culture, Not a Costume: Halloween Costume Social Justice Teach-in” and “I Got Your Back: Redefining Masculinity Social Justice Teach-In.”
