What is the Social Justice Leadership Retreat?

Housing and Residential Life’s Social Justice Leadership Retreat, also known as SJLR,  has been in existence for 16 years. The retreat invites undergraduate students and a team of UMN staff facilitators for an off-campus (three days and two nights) experience focused on various issues of social justice. 

Our next retreat will be in January 2021.  If you’re interested in hearing updates about the retreat (including when the application to participate becomes available), please fill out the interest form below.


The Social Justice Leadership Retreat is designed to help educate students about the concepts of social justice and community leadership. Through extensive experiential learning activities, students will accomplish the following:

  • Gain new knowledge around social justice issues
  • Sharpen skills of self-awareness
  • Learn how to integrate knowledge learned into their lives and the campus community
