Social Justice Program

Designed for Elmhurst students in any major, the Niebuhr Center’s Social Justice Program offers opportunities to learn about social responsibility and share your concerns about human rights. Among the opportunities you'll find:

  • Courses across the curriculum that support your interest in social justice
  • Presentations by community activists and others working to promote justice
  • Seminars and discussions with faculty and fellow students
  • Opportunities to participate in rallies and other demonstrations of support
  • Internships that support you as you serve the Elmhurst College community
  • Grant-supported student/faculty research

The Social Justice Program sponsors two internships each year: the Rosa Parks Intern for Social Justice and the Gandhi Intern for International Justice. Each intern focuses on a particular aspect of social justice and serves as a unifying liaison to a range of interested campus constituents. The interns’ responsibilities are to educate and to create a specific social justice action plan.
