Unformatted text preview: n 1945 by faculty who all resigned from the YMCA College in Chicago to protest its use of quotas and discrimination in student admissions. Consistent with the University’s framework of values, you will learn how psychologists can address inequality and can improve well- being for people and society. You will be encouraged to help remedy these inequalities through community engagement as well. Course Requirements: 1.
