Welcome to West
Our mission is to think critically about the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, nationality and other hierarchies; to understand history, culture and society from a range of perspectives, including those emanating from individuals and communities whose stories and lives have been marginalized; to advocate for human rights and social and environmental justice; and to develop consciousness about multiethnic and gender issues locally, domestically, globally and transnationally. Ultimately, our vision is to develop skills to shape our collective future in ways that foster diversity and equity.
