The mission of Social Justice and Advocacy (SJA) is to promote an equitable campus environment where all are assured that diversity, in its many forms, is valued.

We will support efforts to increase equal access to campus resources and opportunities, while cultivating inclusiveness to the least advantaged members of the campus community. SJA will advocate to decrease obstacles that prevent students from succeeding at the University of Central Florida.

Social Justice and Advocacy will:

  • Advocate for access and equity throughout the UCF campus community
  • Promote civil conversations on issues impacting campus climate
  • Advocate for the advancement of matters of social justice, equity, and inclusion
  • Reduce barriers concerning prejudice and intergroup conflicts.
  • Social Justice and Advocacy will encompass the Multicultural Student Center and LGBTQ+ services to cover all areas of under-represented communities and exclusivity.
