Adams, Bell and Griffin (2007) define social justice as both a process and a goal. "The goal of social justice education is full and equal participation of all groups in a society that is mutually shaped to meet their needs. Social justice includes a vision of society that is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure."
The Social Justice Training Institute provides a forum for the professional and personal development of social justice educators and practitioners to enhance and refine their skills and competencies to create greater inclusion for all members of the community.

For more than 20 years, the Social Justice Training Institute has provided transformative experiences for social justice educators to focus on their own learning and development and increase their competencies as change agents for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The Social Justice Training Institute began as an experience focused on social justice educators across professional backgrounds and has grown to include multiple yearly sessions as well as experiences for college students and renewal opportunities for alumni.
Faculty at the Social Justice Training Institute bring decades of cumulative experience in diversity, equity, and inclusion work in education, corporate, and nonprofit settings. They are united in a belief in the importance of self-work and a commitment to decolonization and the dismantling of systemic oppression.
