Spotlights Students' SJP Work

Two Adler University students completing their Social Justice Practicums (SJP) in Geneva were recently highlighted for their work in the Kane County Chronicle.

Laura Esposito, of Hoffman Estates, Illinois, is helping facilitate Faces of the Fox, an interactive community art installation that showcases the diversity present in the Fox River Valley. Brandon Strickland, of Bartlett, Illinois, is contributing to Guiding Lights, an internal program that creates and supports partnerships among members and friends.

First-year Adler University students are tasked with SJPs by the school’s Center for Civic Learning and Community Action. Alfred Adler’s focus on community life, prevention, and population health is the inspiration for the internship program.

Meeting the requirement includes participating in a six-month, 200-hour, nonclinical assignment; attending all mandatory workshops; completing hour logs and evaluations; and presenting at the university’s annual Community Engagement Symposium.
