Social Justice Research Initiative


The SJRI supports innovative research, scholarship, and pedagogy for social change. The SJRI facilitates research opportunities for faculty and students to work in partnership with community organizations and to bring additional and needed resources to the community.

“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.”
