Courses on Race, Class, Gender, and Social Justice

In agreement with several elements of The 13 Goals of a Colgate Education, every semester the Committee on ALANA Affairs compiles and shares a list of Colgate courses with an emphasis on race, class, gender, and social justice. These courses provide an opportunity for students to better understand historical and contemporary issues, engage in critical dialogue, and reflect upon their identity and sense of self. We encourage all Colgate students to consider taking one or more of the courses listed at some point during their time at the University.
