SCORE Director Jenn Wells Writes on Role of Student Activism on College Campus

CLAREMONT, California - October 31, 2018

Jenn Wells, assistant dean and director of Scripps Communities of Resources and Empowerment (SCORE), published an article in the Journal of School & Society, “Facilitating Student Autonomy, Navigating Community, and Advancing Social Justice on Campus.” The article reviews the historical and social roles of student activism on campus. Writes Wells and coauthors, “We offer practices and framing, based in restorative and transformational justice, to guide more sustainable and community-informed ways to answer students’ call for more inclusive, just, and equitable college campuses.” The John Dewey Society, which published the journal, seeks academic essays that explore the place and function of education in a democratic society.
