The article represents a collaborative effort in sharing how the faculty, at one university, tackles racial justice issues on campus. Four Lasallian scholars writing from various disciplinary contexts and from distinct racial identities reflect on Lasallian mission and values through a social justice lens. Five key words – justice, association, knowledge, fidelity, & wisdom – provide focus as each author draws from their own personal and professional experiences in reflecting on teaching and learning at a Lasallian institution.
Keywords: racial justice, Lasallian mission, association, advocacy, knowledge, fidelity, wisdom, empathy, dignity, action
