Roosevelt student Ramuel Figueroa discusses civic engagement with Barack Obama

Impact on schools and communities is a top priority of the College of Education — as demonstrated by its numerous grant and service projects that engage children and adults in the social justice mission of the university.

My students are going to be social justice change agents. Early childhood teachers are the first educators in children’s lives who help them navigate the future and advocate for them in cases of injustice. It’s imperative that they learn about social justice, multiculturalism and anti-bias curriculum, which is an approach that respects and embraces differences—something I care deeply about given my own experiences.
