St. Thomas Aquinas College has launched a Social Justice and Equity Forum which includes administrators, staff, current students, and a cabinet member—all stakeholders committed to bringing awareness to our diverse student body. Our goal is to create a platform for students to express themselves, use our resources, and thrive with equality and understanding for all.
Every step of progress in this country, every expansion of freedom, every expression of our deepest ideals, has been won through efforts that made the status quo uncomfortable.”

“Being a part of SJE at STAC has not only been an eye-opener but an amazing opportunity that anyone can benefit from. Everyone is impacted by social justice and equity, and it’s our job to spread awareness across campus and as well as in our community, so everyone can feel like they have someone to go to for anything. If we don’t speak up then who will?

"Being a part of SJE at STAC and advocating for my fellow classmates has been an honor. Working with such amazing and passionate individuals proves to me that together we can do so much. Just as Graca Machel once said, ‘Freedom, human dignity and social justice are threads which instinctively tell me from my inner voice what I should do’."
