The Social Justice Teach-In is designed to inspire students and community members to be active and engaged citizens, to increase their understanding of social justice issues, and to enhance their leadership skills in areas such as service, advocacy, and philanthropy. The 2019 conference was a collaboration between CWRU's Center for Civic Engagement & Learning (CCEL), CCEL Student Executive Council, Social Justice Institute, and InterReligious Task Force on Central America (IRTF). The event is held annually early in the spring semester. Please save the date for this year's Teach-In on Saturday, February 8, 2020.
Admission to the Teach-In for students is free; admission for faculty, staff, and community members is usually a modest suggested donation.

A Note about CWRU Values
Case Western Reserve University's core values include inclusiveness and diversity. The Social Justice Teach-In aligns with these values by allowing for the critical examination of different ideas and perspectives and providing opportunities for dialogue and discussion. We ask that all participants at the Teach-In be willing to actively listen, consider viewpoints that may be different from their own, and engage with civility and respect in order to create a constructive learning environment for all.
