Social justice and education conjoin in a complex relationship.
Educational institutions are a prime example of social and cultural thought,
and hold themselves to a high standard for how they address social justice topics. “Students’ multilayered identities and experiences in
higher education are at least partially shaped by their social categories, such
as gender, race, class, ability, sexuality, and religion. Therefore, academic
advisors must gain competence in dealing with students from a wide variety of
backgrounds” (Burton, Puroway & Stevens, 2017, p. 3). The resources
here provide help to individual advisors and institutions on a larger
scale navigate the ever-changing landscape of social policy.
