JuST: Justice & Service in Tacoma

JuST is a cohesive and regularly meeting program geared toward first-year students which hopes to increase awareness of opportunities for service and social justice and helps students find outlets for this work.  JuST develops leaders who are aware globally and engaged locally who are a driving force for community service and social justice issues on campus.  The program exposes students to situations outside of their previous experience and provides a place to reflect upon and discuss those experiences.  Drawing from faculty, staff, older student leaders, student clubs, and community partners, JuST teaches the tools and background needed to be active and proactive in society.  We engage issues of race, class, sex, gender, homophobia, ability, religion, the relationship between service and social justice, and the systems that perpetuate inequality.

JuST meets weekly on the every Tuesday of the month.  We meet in Commencement Hall Room 366 from 5-6 p.m. on Tuesdays.
