The process of developing programming at the undergraduate level in an office with low levels of resources can prove challenging. Taking into account the high turnover rate among student employees, it is important to document and develop sustainable, accessible processes for rolling out and continuing new programs. The purpose of this work is to develop a year-long program of social justice discussion events that can be sustained and reasonably duplicated in future years. The ultimate goal of this project is to promote social justice issue awareness among students and strengthen campus ties with the community. The event series, entitled “Social Justice Coffee Hour,” focuses on a particular social justice issue each month. Community members and organizations whose work relates to the issue at hand are invited to give a presentation followed by student and faculty discussion. The aim is to increase awareness among the student body as well facilitate a symbiotic relationship between community work and academia.
