ANN: NEW Certificate in Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion + Jewish Studies and Social Justice (University of San Francisco)
As trailblazers in integrating Jewish studies with social justice (JSSJ), the University of San Francisco’s Swig Program in Jewish Studies and Social Justice officially announces a new groundbreaking program expanding our student communities: this August, USF is launching the first-ever Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI) graduate-level certificate in JEDI + JSSJ.
This program will allow professionals to power their careers with the tools to implement systemic change around anti-oppression, social justice, and human rights in professional contexts. With a curriculum rooted in current research and best practices around multiracial, multicultural, and multifaith values, students engage with current political and social realities with a focus on equity and intersectionality within the larger context of education both in relation to and outside of the “Jewish world.”
The JEDI + JSSJ certificate program has a diverse and seasoned faculty. Renowned faculty from the Jewish professional world include Camille Angel, Aaron Hahn Tapper, Joy Ladin, Yavilah McCoy, and Julia Watts-Belser, among others.
In as little as 12 months, professionals can attain a graduate-level certificate while boosting their knowledge and skill set, thereby preparing them to make a significant difference in communal life.
