Social Justice Leadership

The Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership (ACSJL) has many resources available to all K college students, including those in the LGBTQAI+ community. The ACSJL works to ensure the building is open and available as a safe space for students to meet, study, relax, or find someone to talk to on issues relating to social justice.

The ACSJL hosts programming throughout the year focused on leadership, education, and capacity-building that advances justice and movement-building. Several of these programs aim to increase understanding of multiple identities relating to gender and sexual orientation as well as highlight the work that is necessary to stop discrimination based on such identities.

The ACSJL is always open to partnering with student organizations to bring programming to campus and the community. In addition, the ACSJL has the Social Justice Leadership Fund that offers grants up to $1000 to support personal leadership development initiatives and research with a social justice focus.

The ACSJL also is home to the Praxis Center, an online resource featuring weekly posts, articles, toolkits, and action steps on a variety of social justice topics, including “Genders and Sexualities.”
