»Chapman Next Step Social Justice Retreat

The Chapman Next Step Social Justice Retreat is an annual event that occurs every February. Next Step gives students a forum to develop knowledge and skills to become better change agents, leaders and activists in regard to diversity, equity, power, privilege, prejudice and discrimination.

The retreat is a model adapted from the Next Step Retreat at the University of Vermont that was collaboratively developed by numerous dedicated student affairs professionals, students, faculty and social justice educators hoping to make a positive impact in their community.
