  2. POWER AND CONTEXT: Students will understand the institutional, cultural, and structural factors of race, power, and privilege that shape perspective and experience.

  3. EMPATHY AND ENGAGEMENT: Students will develop emotional skills necessary to engage with those different from oneself with awareness of and respect for cultural and racial differences and empathy for the different experiences of others.

  4. INTEGRATION AND IMAGINATION: Students will express their own accountability to and participation in all levels of community and will determine how to leverage their own gifts, skills, and resources to work towards racial and social justice.
