" I am exicted to take part in the Millennimun Fellowship this year to transform my knowledge into tangible social impact on campus and within my community.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Social Issues 101
Social Issues 101 aims to educate University of North Florida students about three selected social issues: pronouns and the gender binary, effects of race and class in America, and the refugee crisis in America. The project consists of lecture presentations to contextualize the social issue followed by an engaging discussion prompted by questions regarding how the social issue impacts students at the following levels: personal, community, and global. This will encourage participants to consider the complex social issues and possible solutions in a broad context first focusing on a personal view to help them understand how issues impact them as individuals, the local level to understand the community impact, and finally the global level to reflect on the broader, world-wide impact.
