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.

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.

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.

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.
