Mission

The Social Justice Initiative (SJI) at the University of Illinois at Chicago advances racial and social justice by nurturing intellectual insurgency, furthering the production of knowledge that seeks to change the world, and connecting scholars and activists inside and outside of the university with community-based social change agents in our city, country, and globally.

 

SJI has four ongoing program areas: The Social Justice Portal Project, the Chicago Justice Gallery, the Pipeline to Scholarship and Mentoring Program and the Justice Lens film series. SJI also hosts workshops, lectures, community discussions, events, and conferences. All of our programs encourage UIC students, faculty, and staff to connect with community members and organizers to explore issues of racial and social justice.
