Social Justice


The Social Justice Transdisciplinary Core addresses structural inequalities and racism and their collective impact on economic mobility, educational achievement and overall well-being. Richmond, similar to many urban centers across the nation, struggles with long-standing issues of race, inequality, and justice.

Making significant and meaningful changes in equality around food security, education, well being and economic status in Richmond
This core employs a collaborative framework to enhance the university’s capacity to engage in a mutual exchange of knowledge with Richmond communities to fully incorporate racial and economic justice perspectives in education, service-learning and professional development; community-driven research and scholarship that advances knowledge about how to resolve emergent and extant issues related to racial and economic justice; and service that facilitates intergroup dialogue and action leading to transformative change in individuals, communities, organizations and institutions.
