Campus Partners

The Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service collaborates with offices and departments across the University throughout the academic year. These partnerships deepen and expand CSJ’s work and mission. Below are some departments with which CSJ collaborates on a frequent basis.

The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of religion, ethics, and public life. Through research, teaching, and service, the Center explores global challenges of democracy and human rights; economic and social development; international diplomacy; and interreligious understanding. Two premises guide the Berkley Center’s work: that a deep examination of faith and values is critical to address these challenges, and that the open engagement of religious and cultural traditions with one another can promote peace. The Berkley Center is a frequent collaborator and partner of the Center for Social Justice on such programs as the Education and Social Justice Summer Research Fellows and the White House Interfaith Community Service Challenge.

Georgetown University’s Office of Campus Ministry supports the integration of learning, faith and service through a broad array of programs that engage students, faculty, staff, University leadership, and alumni in the understanding and practice of our religious identity, values and commitments. It partners with the Center for Social Justice on such projects as the Magis Faith and Justice Immersion Experiences, including the Kino Border Immersion, Magis: Jamaica, and the Magis Peru trip for faculty and staff, and the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. Campus Ministry and CSJ also collaborates on jointly hosting a full-time Jesuit Volunteer to support homelessness outreach at both units.

The Center for Multicultural Equity and Access (CMEA) promotes educational excellence and racial equality at Georgetown University by serving African American, Latino, Asian American and Native American students, who were historically excluded from the university. In order to create an exemplary community of faithful and caring learners, CMEA embraces the pluralism embodied by all its students and by working to build a more just society. CSJ and CMEA partner through joint programming and support of the Institute for College Preparation, the Kids2College Program and the Community Scholars Program.

The Center for Student Engagement professional staff advisors work collaboratively with undergraduate and graduate students to create an engaging and vibrant co-curricular experience. By empowering current Georgetown students to create the campus community and culture, CSE helps students develop practical leadership and social skills that complement and enhance the classroom experience. CSJ and CSE partner through joint programming with and support of New Student Orientation, student organizations, and through collaborative work on Hoyalink.

The Office of Community Engagement builds and facilitates internal and external relations with the local community and the greater Washington, DC area. OCE is a frequent partner and collaborator with the Center for Social Justice, particularly on such projects as Community Service Day, the MLK Day of Service and the Help the Homeless Walk.

The Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor (KI) develops innovative public policy and develops creative strategies to improve workers’ lives, while also engaging students voices in this important social justice issue. KI partners with CSJ on the Worker Justice DC Alternative Break Program immersion and on programming related to labor rights and immigration throughout the year.

The LGBTQ Resource Center serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning members of the Georgetown community, and is the first Center of its kind at a Catholic/Jesuit institution in the country. The LGBTQ Resource Center partners with CSJ on the LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Alternative Break Program immersion and on programming related to LGBTQ rights and justice issues.

The Women's Center supports, educates, and empowers women of all cultures, races, sexual orientations, genders, and ages, providing a safe environment while respecting all facet's of women's abilities, spirituality, and difference. The Women's Center partners with CSJ on programs and events related to women's justice issues throughout the academic year.

The Division of Academic and Student Affairs at the School of Foreign Service in Doha, Qatar has collaborated with CSJ on projects related to the Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network (JUHAN) as well as on three cross-campus service and social justice immersion trips, most recently to the US/Mexico border in May 2014.
