Integrating Social Justice in the Health Sciences
CHS faculty and staff frequently attend social justice events to better connect the field with the classroom, such as the recent “Art for Humanity” benefit for the International Rescue Committee. The refugee art exhibit, which included past refugees from Iraq, Iran, and Laos, ties into many goals of the undergraduate program.
“Service Learning is such a critical learning component at CHS that all undergraduate students spend at least one year with valuable community work,” said Moira Delgado, CHS Director of Community Service Learning. “It’s important for our students to explore not only scientific values but also moral values that play a role in health disparities and other current events.”
