The Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership (ACSJL) is an initiative of Kalamazoo College whose mission is to support the pursuit of human rights and social justice by developing emerging leaders and sustaining existing leaders in the field of human rights and social justice, creating a pivotal role for liberal arts education in engendering a more just world.
The Kalamazoo College Global Prize awards $25,000 to an innovative and collaborative social justice leadership project from around the globe. The competition honors and uplifts grassroots work that challenges structural inequality and centers the voices of those most impacted by an injustice.
Up to 10 finalists receive all-expense paid trip to Kalamazoo College to present their projects on campus, and a panel of community-wide and national jurors determines the semi-finalists and winner, respectively. The Global Prize ceremony is a dynamic weekend where the finalists share best practices with each other and the entire K community, who learn about these cutting-edge projects, interact personally with the finalists, and ultimately find inspiration for their own social justice-related pursuits. for more information…
