Case Western Reserve University—a leader among independent research universities—offers world-class academic programs in Cleveland's culturally vibrant University Circle. Learn more about a CWRU education.
Many student groups on the CWRU campus have a broad social justice focus, whether through their constituencies, the issues around which they have organized, or the community groups that they serve. To help realize the Social Justice Institute’s Strategic Vision goal of increased student engagement, we began a new initiative in Fall 2016, designating eligible student organizations as SJI-Supported Student Groups. Once groups complete the orientation process, they receive logistical and programmatic assistance, they have increased access to Leadership Team members and connections with community activists, and their events are publicized to the more than 2200 supporters of the Social Justice Institute. We proud to support the students doing this important work on campus, in Cleveland and across the globe!
The currently designated SJI-Supported Student Groups are:
- Advocates for Cleveland Health
- American Constitution Society
- Design for America
- Distressed Children’s & Infants International
- Feminist Collective at CWRU
- CWRU Global Medical Brigades
- Indigenous Alliance @ CWRU
- La Alianza
- National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI on Campus)
- QGrad: LGBTQA+ Graduate and Professional Student Association
- QHAP: Queer Health Advocates Project
- Radical Student Union
- Sexual Assault and Violence Educators (SAVE)
- Science and Human Rights Coalition
- Universities Allied for Essential Medicines
