Fall 2017 CEPS Workshops

Restorative Justice and Engaged Learning: Cultivating Our Capacities for Justice

Susan Sharpe, Ph.D.

October 26 | 3:00–5:00 p.m. | Geddes Hall, Room 233

Restorative justice and engaged learning are very different approaches, applied in different contexts, yet they share some core assumptions and priorities. This interactive session will introduce the construct of restorative justice and invite participants to consider three things: how the two approaches intersect, how both approaches might help cultivate our personal and collective capacities for justice, and where or how such cultivation might be enhanced in participants’ professional fields. Apply via GradConnect.
