Title
Justice Studies Institute

The Justice Studies Institute (JSI) works to advance interdisciplinary examination and collaboration on justice-based issues at St. Thomas Aquinas College (STAC) and in the broader community.

Who:
Housed in the School of Arts and Social Sciences (SASS), JSI is composed of a mix of faculty members from across SASS, bringing together a diverse disciplinary background to the Institute.

What:
JSI seeks to foster a unique space for academic and activist conversations with STAC students and the broad community on critical social issues. Through a diverse range of panels, invited guest speakers, sponsored film screenings, and topic-based discussions, the Institute aims to be at the forefront of community justice discussions in Rockland County and to cultivate STAC students as active citizens and community members.

Why:
It is imperative that SASS take the lead in bringing national discussions on a range of justice issues to the STAC community, and make critical links between these national conversations and local inequities right here in Rockland County.
