Univer­sity to pay ‘so­cial jus­tice’ ac­tivists

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dou­glas Ernst

The Col­lege of Wil­liam & Mary is fill­ing in­sti­tu­tional so­cial jus­tice “gaps” on cam­pus by giv­ing some stu­dents stipends.

A new pro­gram rolled out by Thomas Jef­fer­son’s alma mater will pro­vide ac­tivists and aca­demics with $250 and ac­cess to fac­ulty men­tors to as­sist their “re­search in the ar­eas of so­cial jus­tice and di­ver­sity.”

“Most of what we’ll be do­ing is try­ing to fill the gaps in terms of so­cial jus­tice ped­a­gogy and at the end of the year, the hope is that they can take their re­search project and turn it into a man­u­script that they can then have pub­lished,” Dr. Na­toya Hask­ins, as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor and cre­ator of the fel­low­ship, said in an in­ter­view posted on the univer­sity’s web­site.
