Mission and Vision

The Alan Dawley Center for the Study of Social Justice (ADCSSJ) is named for the eminent historian, Professor Alan Dawley, who was its founding director. The purpose of the ADCSSJ is to produce and disseminate knowledge about social injustice and its redress. It promotes the interdisciplinary study of any aspect of society where disparities of wealth, power, and privilege contradict ethical precepts. Through forums, symposiums, public lectures, film festivals, course work, campus-wide learning communities, community engagement, and other initiatives, the ADCSSJ strives to create an intellectual space dedicated to the study and practice of social justice for TCNJ and the surrounding community.
