Justice Matters: Social Justice and the Common Good

Dr. J. Romano leads the ECG 200 course Social Justice and the Common Good.  One of the Engagements with the Common Good courses, this course asks students to examine the relationship between social justice and the Common Good.  Through their coursework, students dig into issues of Race Relations, Sexism, Anti-Semitism, Ableism, and Classism, and consider the demands these and other social problems place on members of a democratic society. Romano asks his students the following provocative question: How much injustice and devaluation of the common good can any society endure and still claim to be a fair and just society? As part of the class, students participate in two “Town Meeting” style debates and contribute to a self-selected community endeavor that they find personally meaningful.
