Social Justice Week 2024 Building Belong: Identities Shaping Communities
April 2-4, 2024

Interested in Presenting?

We are excited to invite UWL faculty, staff, and students to submit papers, panels, roundtable presentations, and complete sessions for UWL’s Annual Social Justice Week April 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 2024, sponsored by the Division of Diversity & Inclusion and the Institute for Social Justice. We would also like to highlight some of our other sponsors, the College of Business and Visual and Performing Arts. If you would like to be a sponsor for this academic year's Social Justice Week, please contact the D&I programming committee member Caleb Colon-Rivera

Our theme this year is Building Belonging: Identities Shaping Communities. This year we want to highlight how identities and intersections of identities impact our communities. The University of Wisconsin La Crosse and the people of the La Crosse area hold many identities within it that shape our experiences in the community. We each navigate space differently and desire a community where everyone feels a sense of belonging.

 If you are interested in organizing a session and/or presenting your work during SocialJustice Week, fill out this survey to submit your contact information and abstract. Please keep in mind that selected abstracts will appear in the final program.

The deadline for submitting papers, panels, roundtable presentations, and complete sessions is Friday, March 1st 2024

Please note:

  • We encourage faculty to consider adding this event’s information to your syllabi, as well as bringing your classes to one of the sessions. 
  • UWL offices, institutes, programs, and student organizations that do social justicework are encouraged to organize special sessions or events during Social JusticeWeek

Thank you and we look forward to your contribution,
The Division of Diversity & Inclusion and the Institute for Social Justice
