The Engineering for Social Justice Scholars Program is a leadership initiative that includes a 2-semester service-learning course experience (ENG 398: Social Justice and STEM Education and ENG 398: Leadership in Engineering for Social Justice). Students apply engineering skills in STEM education outreach activities with youth in Chicago and Champaign-Urbana and create meaningful community and social action projects to support engineering for social justice. The courses include exploration of a range of topics related to social justice and engineering, including structural oppression and inequalities in schooling, the impact of racial and ethnic disparities in STEM education, human-centered design and appropriate technology, history, culture, and politics in engineering, and sustainable community development.
