HECUA (Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs) offers off-campus programs for students to do integrative itellectual, political, and artistic work in support of movements for social justice, peace, and environmental sustainability in the U.S. and abroad. HECUA classrooms immerse you in the issues that matter, from income inequality to racial justice, environmental sustainability to media access. Credit-earning internships at local nonprofits cement knowledge and expand networks.
