The purpose of Morrill Scholars Program Learning Community is to prepare students for a life of advocacy and serve as a laboratory for social change. Students will have the opportunity to learn about, discuss and engage with various social justice issues all while living in community with one another. Ultimately, members of the MSPLC will learn how to use thier personal experiences, individual passions, and leadership skills to create social change. This program is open to first- and second-year students in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion Morrill Scholarship Program.

Students who participate in the Morrill Scholars Learning Community can expect to work closely with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion as they:

  • Explore pressing systemic social justice issues through civic engagement activities
  • Engage in dialogue about social justice
  • Interact with other students and staff who are passional about social justice work
