The Social Justice Institute Leadership Team members represent a wide variety of disciplines and research interests and are always looking to expand their knowledge and extend the university's reach. Case Western Reserve University students are no less inquisitive and committed to pursuing social justice in a myriad of ways.
To encourage innovation and scholarship, the institute has established a Social Justice Research Fellowship Program that, through grants, funds faculty and student research that advances social justice work, from humanistic inquiry to action research.
Previous grants have supported proposals that focus on issues that are both local and global. From youth development to elderly care; from political systems to individual recovery efforts, these projects have represented the same diversity as their recipients.
