Social Change

How do we become powerful social change agents in our communities?

Social change takes knowledge and skills along with a belief in the power of working together for a common purpose. Youth have played a critical role in many social movements working for justice and equity. This LLC explores social movements and change strategies through a lens of equity and justice to prepare students to collaborate for the public good. 

The Social Change LLC is for students who are interested in addressing social, political and economic injustices, and learning about how to become an active part of the solutions through community engagement. 

Students who participate in the Social Change LLC will:

  • Live together with 30 similarly interested students in Johnson-McFarlane Hall and have access to specially crafted events to learn and build community including retreats, speakers, dinners, and student-led events.

  • Learn together by enrolling in one 2-credit seminar for the Fall, Winter, and Springs quarters.

  • Build community together while receiving support from an LLC staff program coordinator who provides day to day and quarter to quarter co-curricular programming and support including retreats, dinners, speakers, and active learning excursions.

What is your favorite LLC memory? 

My favorite memory with the SJLLC was visiting Serene, my favorite restaurant right off campus. We had really fulfilling conversations over amazing food. It was a great way to end our year.

What else are you involved with on campus? 

I am Vice President of IGNITE, a chapter of a national organization working to diversify political positions for women. I am also Vice President of the Fashion and Sewing Club. I’m also a part of the DIVEST DU’s social media team. I work at the DU Center for Sustainability for their Marketing and Communications team as the Social Media Leader.

Why did you choose to apply to the Social Change LLC? 

I am very passionate about Social Justice and Legal Advocacy. I wanted to learn more about systemic issues in place. I also wanted to feel safe on campus as I wasn’t sure what to expect coming to DU. I thought that living with a group passionate about Social Justice was the best way to do that.
