Mission

The Mansfield Institute for Social Justice and Transformation, created in 1999 through a generous gift from the Mansfield Foundation, gives Roosevelt University a unique opportunity to develop an integrated program of curriculum, research, and outreach focused on social justice issues through which students will develop into socially conscious leaders. We create and facilitate scholar activism among our students, faculty and members of our community, through a pedagogy of transformational learning, social justice programming, and action.
