Zahra Ahmed - Breathing Life into Social Justice Work. How do we transform our social justice work into life practices? How can our work be strengthened by a commitment to live and practice social justice in our daily lives while also structuring our work around this important process and goal?

Kevin Guerrieri – Unfreezing Concepts: The Work of Social Justice and the University. How do we conceptualize the intersection of social justice work, academic freedom, and the multiple purposes of the university?

Estela G. Ballón - Centering the Expertise of Students from Underserved Communities in Service-LearningThis talk will focus on how to center students from underserved communities in the development of service learning in their communities. Their knowledge and lived experiences can provide broader and multi-layered insights to the community that are incomplete or unavailable through academic and news informational sources.

Jodie Parys - Deconstructing the Global Immigration Rhetoric through Community Based Learning in the Local Community. The U.S.-Mexico border is in a state of constant flux, particularly given the current political climate and recent migrant caravans seeking asylum.  However, it is often difficult for college students to separate fact from rhetoric, particularly in this politically charged environment.  As educators, how do we in higher education guide our students in this process and help them deconstruct the rhetoric?

Marsiol Morales:  Return on Equity. How do we describe the amount of social, cultural, political, economic and environmental return an institution, community, or society generates as a result of the efforts, commitment and investment in eliminating barriers to full participation, especially for those historically and structurally marginalized from participation?
