Advocating for an inclusive and culturally engaged community
Mixed LLC Experience
The Advocates of Tomorrow Mixed Living-Learning Community is designed to be a close-knit community where residents can learn about social issues and embrace the different life experiences and points of view of fellow community members.
This community is designed for students of all class years and identities who are passionate about equal rights for all people and for those who aspire to become change agents. This LLC works to build upon students’ passions related to social justice, while building respect for diversity in all its forms. With such a diverse student population on-campus, this LLC is charged with building a supportive community that encourages dialogue across differences and to promote multicultural education, self-awareness, and social change. Participants will learn and explore social activism, social change, and the historical/philosophical foundations of justice through specialized programming, speakers, field experiences and community service opportunities. This LLC is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and is supported by dedicated social justice advocates who serve the community as both Faculty and Staff Advisors.
