About Our Department

Our programs are highly regarded in the New England region for preparing equity-minded scholar-practitioners to take on leadership roles in a variety of K-12 and higher education organizations.

For our Department, social justice is not simply a buzzword added to marketing materials when it becomes fashionable to do so. Instead, this term conveys the ethos and values that have guided our work for nearly three decades and that will continue to animate our efforts toward anti-racism and restorative justice.
