Students Leading the Way toward Social Justice within and beyond the Classroom
Cook-Sather, Alison; Cohen, Jody; Alter, Zanny
Equity & Excellence in Education, v43 n2 p155-172 2010
In this article we present two programs we have developed at Bryn Mawr College designed to effect socially just change on our campus and beyond. Both programs create forums for dialogue across differently positioned community members and ensure that students assume leadership roles in these efforts. In our discussion we describe the programs, identify their shared premises, and discuss preliminary findings--both benefits and challenges--from our ongoing study of participants' experiences in the programs. We highlight the kinds of personal changes participants experience as they pave the way for institutional change, and we emphasize how students lead all participants down the still unfolding paths these programs chart.
