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 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.
The ADCSSJ aims to provide a focal point for students, scholars, community leaders, and public intellectuals involved in social justice issues in the state of New Jersey and beyond. The ADCSSJ seeks to be the voice and nerve center of TCNJ’s core beliefs and public mission that “regards education in the service of human welfare as its chief end.”
