    Social Justice

    Hamline University has a long tradition of promoting Social Justice on our campus and in our wider community. The Wesley Center provides programming for students to engage in the multifaceted work of social justice at Hamline and beyond. 

    Our slogan is: "Be the change you wish to see in the world," - Gandhi.

    Our signature social justice programs are the Catalyst Alternative Spring Break Trips, where students travel to cities across the United States to engage in continued learning about issues such as food justice, immigration & refugee rights, environmental justice, interfaith collaboration, community building, and more. Leading up to election cycles, our office helps facilitate Hamline Votes, a campaign to maximize voter engagement on campus. Recently, we've been working to implement food access initiatives, programming, and advocacy across Hamline University, so all students have access to affordable, nutritious, and culturally appropriate foods.
