The goals of this workshop are to assess the impact of data and visualization choices, increase awareness of the latest trends and practices, and promote collaboration opportunities across campus.

Social justice is not an isolated topic related to one particular discipline. Many times, it requires intersectionality among faculty and students across many disciplines. Whether it is through advancing racial equity, promoting sustainable and inclusive development, or addressing imbalance in accessibility to basic services, social justice can be advanced beyond traditional departmental boundaries. 

This workshop brings together researchers with different expertise to spark discussions and collaborations related to advancing social justice in academia, organizations, communities, and society in general.

Please join us to learn more about the amazing social justice work occurring at Clemson and opportunities for collaboration.
