EDU-7500: Leadership for Social Justice, Contexts of Education

Students will examine the social and political systems within which they work and how to lead change within those systems. Emphasis is on a systems approach to change and arriving at an individual understanding of leadership that is based on each student’s conceptions of their role in seeking social justice through education. Students engage with their peers and scholarly leadership literature to address barriers and facilitators to change in their setting. Students will also explore various constructions of the term “social justice” and reflect the leadership implications of their preferred approach to social justice Using the program’s cross-cutting strands each student develops a written analysis of their setting (organization or community), a presentation to their cohort, and a substantial self-reflective essay on their strengths and areas for further development with regard to leadership approach, critical reflection, the use of dialogue, the significance of tacit knowledge, and coalition building for change.
