Engage, Grow and
Further the Goals
This minor benefits students who seek a career in public service, including government, law, medicine, social work, non-profit organizations, advocacy work, clergy and education, as well as those students who wish to engage in the issues and ideas surrounding social justice and diversity. Students in any major interested in devoting energy to organizations that further the goals of social justice will find this minor a solid foundation for a lifetime of community activism.
