What is the JLC?
- JLC is an advisory council to the provost’s office with representation from all departments, programs, and offices on campus. In response to the students, staff, and faculty voices in the past years, we are striving to honor and build on the work of our predecessors and current allies to systematize AUNE’s social justice mission.
- The definition of social justice was generated by the members of the AUNE community: “Social Justice is a dynamic goal and process to achieve equitable access to fulfill human needs, opportunities, and rights. So all people have the capacity to hold institutions accountable and to not just live, but thrive.”
- Institutionalize social justice initiatives with a mind toward longevity
- Build community through social justice initiatives at AUNE, with Keene State College, and within the Keene/Monadnock community

Examples of the work:
- Living Our Mission Series (LOM): a series of events, workshops, panels, and activities that help us learn and work together to successfully and robustly embody our mission. AUNE has seen two examples of the LOM series thus far: the Trans 101 workshop; and the Racial Justice Workshop (both in Spring 2017).
Examples of current projects and initiatives:
- Student Social Justice 2016 Survey Report
- Event Planning (Fall Full Campus Gathering, Living Our Mission Series)
- Curricula Review*
- International Student Resources and Support*
- Implementation of non-gender binary infrastructure (bathrooms, forms)
*All initiatives were borne out of the direct experiences of students.
