The Justice Faculty Fellows Program has been in existence with the Center for the Study of Justice in Society (CSJS) since 2005. The research seminar seeks to foster interdisciplinary and/or collaborative faculty scholarship to promote justice. Faculty fellows apply to participate in a seminar group of their choice and then work with the seminar directors—distinguished SU faculty scholars—on particular topics. At the end of the year, fellows present their works-in-progress to other participating fellows and invited guests in a roundtable session.
The CSJS is proud to have had more than 70 Justice Faculty Fellows and seminar directors participate in the program in the past five years!
