The Grand Challenges initiative encourages our faculty, staff and students to delve into multidisciplinary investigation of problematic social and global issues. Grounded in shared goals, integrative skills and technologies, and an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, the Grand Challenges Project reinforces the fact that today's solutions need to include many stakeholders across a spectrum of scholarship, creative activity and opinion.
Our Challenge: Race, Racism and Social Justice
Fall 2021 - Spring 2024
Beginning in fall 2021 and for the next three years – across all disciplines, departments and divisions – the SUNY Oswego campus community will deeply engage with multi-dimensional issues of the social construction of racial identities, complex systems of oppression and privilege, and societal transformation. This Grand Challenges effort will give Oswego students, faculty and staff a unique opportunity to address the impact that race, racism and social justice have across every aspect of our global community.
