UC Santa Barbara: new Social Justice Faculty Lectures

Posted by heo

The 1968 takeover of North Hall was part of UCSB’s history of student activism.

We hope you will encourage your colleagues to supplement your school’s fall curriculum with our new Social Justice Faculty Lecture Series. UCSB faculty are passionate about equity and social justice, and they regularly teach and conduct research on these subjects. These lectures are a perfect addition to AVID, history, social science, or ethnic studies classes as they are interdisciplinary in nature.
