Ethics and Social Justice

Students presenting on board



When graduates have a deeper understanding of issues of social justice and greater ethical competency, they can play more significant roles in policy formulation. We are seeking to raise $500,000 to capitalize on the existing expertise in ethics and social justice to offer a much wider level of competency to all programs.


Issues of ethics and social justice permeate our society and are more important than ever. When students have been exposed to these issues and are encouraged to think deeply about them, they will take their experience out into the workplace and society.

Funding for this initiative will go to support curriculum and the study of ethics and social justice issues from different perspectives: history, philosophy, literature, and art to name a few. The development of this area is not only important to the branding and distinctiveness of the university, but to our students as well. 


Many faculty members in different disciplines in the college and university are engaged with issues relating to ethics and social justice. This project will help to link their research and teaching and address ethical dimensions of local and global problems.

Funds raised will go towards:

  • Student scholarships
  • Student travel grants
  • Conference support
  • Funding for workshops for existing instructors and new faculty members
