At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

The Social Justice Training Institute
"The Student Experience!"
July 20 – 23, 2011
Cornell College (Iowa)

What is the Social Justice Training Institute?
Opportunity for students to gather and do some "personal work" related to social justice issues. The institute is open to 50 undergraduate students on college and university campuses in the U.S. and abroad. This advanced experience is for students who have done a fairly significant amount of work on social justice issues.

The Social Justice Training Institute will provide an intensive developmental opportunity for students to examine the complex dynamics of oppression and to develop strategies to foster positive change on their campuses and in their communities.

We invite you to join similar students from a variety of campuses for an experience focused on what we can learn about ourselves, our own identities, and our skills in order to be more effective advocates, allies and agents for change. SJTI Student Experience is the rare opportunity to reflect on our own identities, experiences and impacts, and to focus on what we each can do to better embody social justice.
