About the Center for Social Justice

The Center for Social Justice Education (CSJE), situated within the Social Work Department of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Southern Indiana, was established in 2009 to foster advocacy for social justice and empowerment through education, research and collaboration.  

The Center promotes social justice and empowerment through advocacy, education, research and collaboration. The Center is dedicated to individual and societal well-being in a global community, promoting critical thinking and a systems perspective across agencies, institutes, departments and individuals to pursue social change for all individuals' well-being.
