A Living Learning Community

"The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us."
- Dorothy Day

 

What is the purpose of this community?

The Social Justice Living Learning Community is an opportunity for sophomore students to live on two floors in Straz Tower and focus on creating positive social change.

Participants will take one class with fellow community members each semester:

Fall semester: Philosophy 1001, Philosophy of Human Nature
Spring semester: Philosophy 2310, Philosophy of Ethics

The courses include a service-learning component designed to enhance students' academic experience through engagement with Milwaukee.
