The Center for Social Justice Education (CSJE), situated within the Social Work Department of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Southern Indiana, was established in 2009 to foster advocacy for social justice and empowerment through education, research and collaboration.
The Center promotes social justice and empowerment through advocacy, education, research and collaboration. The Center is dedicated to individual and societal well-being in a global community, promoting critical thinking and a systems perspective across agencies, institutes, departments and individuals to pursue social change for all individuals' well-being.
CSJE sponsored a trip to Indianapolis for the National Association of Social Workers - Indiana Chapter LEAD Day on 2/18/19. LEAD stands for Legislative Education and Advocacy Development. We took 30 undergraduate and graduate social work students to learn more about the state house, the legislative process, and the importance of advocacy as a social worker.
Here is a photo of some of the LEAD Day attendees.
