Catalyzing Change

The education of future social justice leaders—and the ongoing training of those already in the field—is a core function of Case Western Reserve University's Social Justice Institute. By emphasizing the roots, processes, structures and manifestations of inequality and social justice in action, the Institute emphasizes a truly unprecedented, university-wide curricular program designed to equip and empower agents of change.

The Institute embraces and rewards engaged thinking that bridges classroom knowledge with hands-on experience through interdisciplinary academic programs and other research opportunities.
