It has long been the expectation that institutions of higher education should lead the way in creating a more just world. We are currently experiencing a time of activism and organizing in which under-served communities are being clear about what they need and desire from those in power. In maintaining a place as institutions that promote the greater good, it's important to be aware of what these needs are so that community engagement can be tailored to be sensitive to and be aware of those needs and desires as well as how social injustice may be affecting members of our own campus communities.
