I am so proud of the guidebook produced by the students in the fall 2008 section of the First Year Seminar I teach at UNC-CH: "Spanish and Entrepreneurship: Language, Cultures, and North Carolina Communities." It is a comprehensive guide to businesses and services available to Spanish-speakers in our county. The assignment was to gather all the information, but students went above and beyond, forming and re-forming groups to publish the guidebook.
At the end of the course, student feedback revealed that they all agreed that "social justice" had to be removed from the course description. We had not talked about social justice at all and I didn't plan to talk explicitly in those terms in future sections of the course so I took those words out. But I was also careful to point out to students that the very guidebook they had worked so hard to publish would be objectionable to a lot of people precisely because it encourages undocumented immigrants (and others) to access public services. I believe their work is a wonderful example of social justice: not only does the guidebook say "here is a convenient list of businesses and services," it also says "and by publishing it in this beautiful and widely available form we believe you absolutely have the right to use them."
I'm not sure if the students felt duped! I encourage them to post comments here so they can represent their own views on the matter.
