Our people

We see inherent value in the interdisciplinary and community-linked approach. These two factors help push the concept of "social justice" out of the solely conceptual and academic arena and into the practical level or "real world."

The program is made possible through a diverse group of academics across three faculties, eight departments, and five programs, as well as a robust affiliated community who we partner with on events, workshops and practicum placements for our students.
