The ISS reorganization resulted in various changes, one being the emergence of the unit, Integrated Learning for Social Change (ILSC). During this period of transition, the Project Social Justice (PSJ) mentoring program is currently on hold.
About PSJ: During fall 2013 the program piloted as a nine-month mentoring program for students interested in becoming effective social change agents. The vision of the program was to develop diverse leaders dedicated to creating a welcoming and inclusive society. At the end of the spring 2014 quarter, 12 mentees finished the program by completing social change projects with support from their various mentors. Projects addressed race, class, gender, sexuality, and the interconnectedness of all of these critical issues. Mentees successfully made ripples of positive social change, planting seeds for liberation and understanding at OSU.
