Social Justice Leadership Retreat
University of Minnesota Social Justice Leadership Retreat takes approximately 50 students and 20 facilitators away from campus for three days and two nights of immersion activities focused on various issues of social justice. After arriving in early evening on night one, the group spends time developing trust and relationships in small and large group discussions along with facilitators. The following two days are used to facilitate a journey for each student in exploring their own identities, sharing their personal story in their small group, listening to the personal stories of others, and attending training sessions on privilege, understanding personal identities, and what all of this means in leadership. Topics of discussion and reflection include race and racism, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, and campus climate.
