The purpose of this project is co-creation in the redesign of seven core courses in the SACP program by elevating social justice pedagogies. A tenet to this revision is co-creation, based on collaboration between SACP faculty and students and the larger community in a culturally sensitive, responsive, and meaningful manner. The aim of this project is to: 1) examine the presence of social justice training across core areas of the SACP curriculum through a content analysis of course outlines for graduate courses offered in SACP, and b) program support documents (e.g., handbook, practicum documents, admissions policies); and 2) elevating social justice pedagogies in the SACP curriculum.
