Justice Resources: Food

Justice Theme for 2009-2010: FOOD

During the 2009-2010 academic year, the Education for Justice Office is sponsoring University-wide reflection on the theme of food. This can take the form of public lectures, club activities, course assignments, and informal conversation. Faculty and student research on that theme will be recognized in various ways. Individuals or groups who hope to promote this reflection may contact the Education for Justice Office for assistance.
