About the Social Justice Research Initiative
The mission of Coastal Carolina University’s Social Justice Research Initiative (SJRI) is to promote and integrate community-based research, experiential learning, and project-based community service by collaborating with diverse community partners to promote social justice and change.
Three core components comprise the SJRI’s work: education, research, and action.
“There must exist a paradigm, a practical model for social change that includes an understanding of ways to transform consciousness that are linked to efforts to transform structures.”
