Education for Justice

Education for Justice


Theme for 2010-2011: Reconciliation

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.
