NMSU CAMP and J. Paul Taylor Social Justice Symposium

The J. Paul Taylor Social Justice Symposium, is an expression of NMSU's land grant mission, which each year is devoted to an issue of concern to the state and region. In 2005, the College of Arts and Sciences at New Mexico State University established the J. Paul Taylor Social Justice Symposium (JPTSJS). The J. Paul Taylor Symposium is traditionally held in late March or early April, each year, to commemorate the birthday of civil rights activist Cesar Chavez. The symposia are designed to build upon existing university and community partnerships through reciprocal education, outreach and strategizing as part of NMSU’s land-grant mission. Each year scholars, students, community stakeholders and policy makers gather from across the state and region to explore, learn, and work together on strategies for reform and justice.
