The Engineering for Social Justice Scholars Program is a leadership initiative that includes a 2-semester service-learning course experience. Students apply engineering skills in STEM education outreach activities with underrepresented youth in Champaign (T or R 4:30-5:30) and create meaningful social action projects to support engineering for social justice. The courses include exploration of a range of topics related to social justice and engineering, including structural oppression and inequalities in schooling, the impact of racial and ethnic disparities in STEM education, human-centered design and appropriate technology, sustainable community development, and history, culture, and politics in engineering. The ESJ Scholars Program is a 2-semester commitment. Courses count toward College of Engineering Liberal Education Electives & Technical Electives for the ILEE Degree.
