JusticeCon 2024

The Office of Student Inclusion & Diversity and the JusticeCon Planning Committee at UNC Pembroke recently announced events for JusticeCon 2024, to be held in-person February 23-24, 2024, in the Chavis Student Center and the University Center Annex. 

First held in 2022, JusticeCon offers students, faculty, staff, alumni, scholars and the community a two-day UNCP Comic-Con experience that incorporates opportunities to explore the intersection of fandom, popular culture, and social change. Previously held as the Social Justice Symposium, this event has transformed into JusticeCon in order to more intentionally engage our students, encourage critical thinking, and develop a sense of belonging across our campus and community. 

This year's partners include: Art Club, Beyond the Lines, Chess Club, eSports Club, the Hawk's Nest, K-Revolution, and the Mary Livermore Library.

Be sure to register to receive the full schedule of events!



Registration is now open! Attendance to JusticeCon is free but registration is required. Those who register will receive the full schedule of events via email prior to the beginning of the event.

Please note that there will not be an opportunity for online attendance at this time.
