The Social Justice Institute presents meaningful events where students, scholars and community members gather together to tap into our individual and collective psyches and souls, hearts and minds, knowledge and networks of support, and dare to draw forth the words, analyses, strategies and actions that respect and uplift human dignity and life.  We are honored to provide distinctive educational opportunities  – and we invite you to join us and become partners in our work. 

Due to health and safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, SJI has transitioned to offering virtual programming for the foreseeable future.
