In December 2020, the Humanities Center held a student contest to think more deeply and open a conversation about the role the humanities play in social justice through the lens of our membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We asked interested students to compose an essay in response to these questions: “How do my beliefs and values as a disciple of Christ, and my skills and education as a student of the humanities shape my attitudes toward others? And what bearing do those attitudes have on my views of social justice? Describe in detail one instance in which your humanities education has helped you promote social justice in a way that reflects a Gospel perspective.”
We hope you enjoy reading these wonderful essays from our students. To see the Creative Arts category winners, click here.
