Education for Justice

As a Jesuit university founded on the Gospel, The University of Scranton is committed to "the service of faith and the promotion of justice."

Education for Justice

  • enables us to reflect on the meaning of justice
  • makes us aware of injustice in our society and throughout the world,and of efforts being made to remedy injustice
  • introduces us to various methods of analysis, so that we may be able to respond.

A significant dimension of this commitment is social justice, concerned with how social, political, and economic structures impact individuals and groups, especially the impoverished and the less powerful, as well as the environment.

2013-14 Annual Theme: Sustainable Memory

More and more “sustainability” is moving from being recognized as an environmental practice to being thought of as an overarching mindset – what does it mean to approach all aspects of our lives and work in a sustainable manner? It is with this question in mind that Education for Justice will explore the concept of Sustainable Memory this year.
