Center for Social Justice, Teaching and Research
The Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service (CSJ) opened its doors in January 2001 at Georgetown University. It is a concrete and imaginative manifestation of the university's commitment to "justice and the common good," as described in its Mission Statement. The CSJ has a mission that is simple to state but far-reaching in its implications: "In order to advance justice and the common good, the CSJ promotes and integrates community-based research, teaching and service by collaborating with diverse partners and communities.”
All PJP students participate in the CSJ's initiative for community-based learning (CBL); students undertake work in and with the community as part of a PJP course in order to further their understanding of the academic material and the intellectual methods of the field while meeting community-defined needs. Many students find that a minor/certificate in Justice and Peace complements and provides an academic home for their social justice work in one or more of the CSJ's projects and programs, alternative spring break service immersion experiences, or 46 student organizations.
