Opportunity. Connection. Community. Empowerment. 

The Social Justice & Service team is situated within Student Life at Southern Oregon University. Our team of Resource Center professional and student staff members provide justice and social change-related education, inclusive trainings, programs, initiatives, and outreach for our campus. We offer an array of student and campus community focused programs and activities that encourage engagement and enhance the understanding and appreciation of our environment, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, re-entry, and veteran statuses. 

Everyone is welcome to visit our Resource Centers and participate in our activities!

Location Changes and Updates: 

In mid-August 2019, the SOU Resource Centers moved to new locations! Four of the Centers previously located on the first floor of the Stevenson Union (SU), moved to the third floor. The Student Sustainability Resource Center is in SU 310 and the Veterans Resource Center is now in SU 301. The Women's and Queer Resource Centers are in SU 308, located together with the Multicultural Resource Center.

**Student leaders and professional staff are working together during this significant transition time. We invite you to visit the new spaces, be part of the team working to ensure that our collaborations are student-centered, and share your voices and opinions. Contact Multicultural Resource Center Coordinator, Marvin Woodard, to be part of this integral process by emailing him directly at: woodardm@sou.edu.  

Background on the 3 Centers in their new shared spaces: 

Before the moves occurred, students and professional staff members gathered to envision what the shared space might look like. Once the MRC, QRC, and WRC were in their new locations, meetings continued to envision ways to create a lively shared, collaborative, interactive space.
