Dorothy Day Social Justice Community
A Living Learning Community
"The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us."
- Dorothy Day
What is the purpose of this community?
The Social Justice Living Learning Community is an opportunity for sophomore students to live on a floor in Straz Tower and focus on creating positive social change.
Participants will take one class with fellow community members each semester:
- Fall semester: Philosophy 2310, Philosophy of Ethics
- Spring semester: Theology 3530, Theology and Economics
The courses include a service-learning component designed to enhance students' academic experience through engagement with Milwaukee.
Spend your sophomore year living with others who have similar goals: advocating for justice issues, whether poverty or fair trade, the environment or education.
