The Social Justice and Diversity Committee works to create experiences with the goal of bringing awareness to diverse groups of people on campus.

Social Justice and Diversity Week

SJ&D Week is a week sponsored by RHA that brings students together to help understand the diverse and unique world we live in. The week focuses on intentional programming and activities that educate and encourage the campus community. Social Justice and Diversity Week 2018 will be in Spring of 2019. More information about SJD Week will be available in the Spring and shared through this website and at upcoming RHA Meetings.

RHA partners with University Housing and Dining Service's Social Justice Committee. This allows for a wide variety of programming and events. Some of these events include the Tunnel of Oppression and the Writing on the Wall project. The wall represents the barriers of hatred and intolerance that separates us as human beings. The wall stands for four days and on the fourth day students and the community will be invited to help tear down the wall, tearing down the barriers between the EIU community. More information will be available in the spring semester.
