The Project

Social Justice & Equity Project

The Social Justice and Equity Project promotes academic excellence by advancing social justice and equity through mutually beneficial collaboration among university and community constituencies. The Project is organized around three overlapping areas:

  1. Academic Programs, Research, and Knowledge Diffusion
  2. Student Life and Engagement
  3. Community Connections.

Striving to surmount boundaries that sometimes act to separate parts of the university into silos, the Project supports collaboration so that activities in one area reinforce activities of other areas, creating synergistic effects and outcomes.  The themes guiding the Project’s activities are collaboration, communication and curricular innovation.

Join us for our 4th Annual Social Justice and Equity Symposium on Thursday, April 7, 2011. Learn more...
