Local to Global Justice: Roles of Student Activism in Higher Education, Leadership Development, and Community Engagement

Flora Farago, Beth Blue Swadener, Jennifer Richter, Kimberly A. Eversman, Denisse Roca-Servat

This study examined how organizing an annual social justice forum and festival through involvement in a multi-issue, progressive, activist student organization called Local to Global Justice (LTGJ; www.localtoglobal.org) impacted students’ academic experiences and professional development (e.g., scholar-activism, critical thinking, applied learning), leadership development, and community engagement and activism.
