Cooperative Consortium for Transdisciplinary Social Justice Research - Our Purpose

OUR PURPOSE

Student Conference

The Cooperative Consortium for Transdisciplinary Social Justice Research is a hub for social justice research at the University of Louisville, offering programming, small grants, and institutional support. By connecting faculty, students, and community partners across disciplines and cultural boundaries, the Consortium seeks innovative solutions for complex social justice issues.

OUR BACKGROUND STORY

Belknap Library

The Cooperative Consortium for Transdisciplinary Social Justice Research was selected in October 2016 for an internal grant under the 21st Century University Initiative for Academic and Research Excellence. More than 45 faculty members cooperated to launch the Consortium, and it is supported with pledges from over 31 University offices, units, centers, institutes, and departments.

The Consortium is directed by the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research and the Muhammad Ali Institute for Peace and Justice, in collaboration with the Brandeis Laboratory for Citizenship, the Commonwealth Institute of Kentucky, and Health Sciences Center Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
