What we do

Link to join SJRC


The Social Justice Research Center (SJRC) at the University of Wyoming is an interdisciplinary center dedicated to the generation of scholarship connected to addressing practical and theoretical questions arising from the pursuit of social justice.

Social justice is defined as the advancement of a just society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity so that all people have a right to unbiased treatment and a fair allowance of community resources. A just society exists when individuals’ well being is not constricted based on gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, socioeconomic circumstances, veteran status, or group membership.

The SJRC cultivates social justice focused scholarship in the belief that when any segment or community experiences injustice, democratic ideals are at risk. The SJRC supports research scholars (UW faculty, staff, and students) by providing opportunities for collegial exchange, professional development, and financial sponsorship.

The goals of the SJRC include:

  • Production and dissemination of research which has a social justice profile

  • Outreach to research possibilities around the state and region while expressly recognizing the interconnectedness of local, national, and global concerns

  • Intellectual exchange rooted in critical analysis

  • Constructive dialogue undertaken in a climate of respect

  • Serve as a catalyst for grant funding related to the purposes of the SJRC and given the problem-based nature of research, the generation of knowledge that will contribute to the development of broad meaningful solutions to systemic challenges
