Equity Studies Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

The Equity Studies major is grounded in a vision of collective liberation. We are all connected through what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. described as an “inescapable network of mutuality,” and dismantling the mechanisms of inequality and oppression requires both internal critical self-examination and recognition of and opposition to external systems and structures that perpetuate injustice.

The local, national, and global challenges of inequality that our communities and the broader world perpetuate are complex and multifaceted, and they are compounded by intersectionality (that is, by having multiple identities which are not part of the dominant culture). The Equity Studies major is, therefore, designed to be interdisciplinary and intersectional.
