The 6th floor east wing of Wilson Hall will pilot a new Living-Learning Community in Fall 2014. The Arts & Social Justice Living-Learning Community is a space for visual artists, performance artists, and creative writers to connect, engage, and inspire art in the interest of positive sustainable change.
Through the arts, we aim to engage multiple communities and to explore interpersonal and systemic issues of social justice to create spaces that will challenge paradigms and transform the lives of our residents, our campus community, and our world. This small, tight community has limited space – only 30 students for the pilot year.
In line with the goals of this community to explore, engage, and examine the world beyond traditional identity norms, this community will be Gender-Inclusive. By choosing to be a part of this community, all participants agree to live in a gender-inclusive space which entails using a common bathroom and shower space composed of individual private stalls in a gender-inclusive bathroom.
This new community is open to all students of all majors. Experience or expertise with art or social justice not required. Linked classes will be offered through The School of Language, Culture, and Society (SCLS).
There is a resident director serving Wilson Hall, andtwo resident assistants (RAs) on each floor. Rooms are coed by neighbor with a men's and women's bathroom on each floor.
Wilson Hall houses approximately 350 students, and floors one through five are open to general room selection.
Wilson Hall will be open during all breaks next year. For more information, visit the Break Housing Information page.
