Education for Empowerment is a minor housed in the School of Education (Marsal School) for students who want to explore the relationship between education, power, and justice. This minor was designed to engage students within the University who are interested in serving youth and their families beyond the classroom.
Students who select the Education for Empowerment minor are students who want to work actively to advance justice through multiple avenues of education. Students who complete the minor are better prepared to think about the ways in which we engage with youth and their communities to solve problems in solidarity with those experiencing injustice.
Education for Empowerment is a minor that creates the opportunity for students to think about how education is a tool for advancing justice; it then offers students the space to become action-oriented. This minor was developed collaboratively out of the SOE’s commitment to understanding the relationship between education, power, and justice. Education for Empowerment is cited as a minor that belongs to the SOE at large because so many faculty and staff worked to bring it about as an opportunity for students across the University.
