We invite proposals for inclusion in the first annual "Le Moyne College Social Justice Conference," to be held on Friday, April 7 from 12-4:30pm (the afternoon before Spring Convocation).
The purpose of this annual conference is to enable the Le Moyne College community to discern the meaning of social justice for our community, to present and discuss successful projects that integrate social justice activities in courses of study and departments, and to stimulate new ideas and more campus involvement.
The conference will begin in Grewen Auditorium with Father Charles Beirne, S.J. as Keynote Speaker, addressing the topic, "The Meaning of Social Justice at a Jesuit College."
Father Beirne's presentation will be followed by three 40 minutes sessions, with 3-4 concurrent sessions during each time period, in which members of the Le Moyne community will participate in presentations and discussions on social justice activities and possibilities at Le Moyne College. The program will conclude with panel observations, assessments, and the announcement of the Jesuit Social Justice Award.
We invite your participation. If you or others you know are engaged in some curricular or co-curricular activity that promotes inclusion, diversity, social justice, or service to others, then we want to include you in the program. Possible session formats include:
- Roundtable-roundtable sessions give participants an opportunity to discuss papers or posters with authors after an informal presentation;
- Symposium-submitted by one person who organizes the event to feature information on one topic;
- Panel-organized around a topic presenting several perspectives on the topic;
- Alternative Format-presenters interact with participants using posters, theater, debate, music, dance, art or other imaginative format.
Persons interested in sharing their work should contact Patti Schmidt (Education, ext. 4793, Schmidt@lemoyne.edu) or Fred Glennon (Religious Studies, ext. 4343, Glennon@lemoyne.edu) no later than March 6th. Space on the program is limited so do not delay!
