Save-the-Date! The UC Santa Cruz Giving Day fundraiser will happen on September 30, 2020!
The Science and Justice Research Center (SJRC) is a globally unique endeavor that brings questions of justice into the very heart of science. Ecological destruction, data justice, and growing inequalities in a technological world are complicated issues that require diverse knowledges and insights. The Center gathers social scientists, humanists, engineers, physical and biological scientists, and artists to collaborate and respond to these complex and core concerns of these times.
Central to our efforts, is the unique and world renown Science and Justice Training Program (SJTP). Started with a grant from the National Science Foundation, the SJTP teaches students collaborative methods and knowledge sharing strategies for collectively addressing situations where questions of science meet questions of justice. This program is training the next generation of researchers to maximize the public good of science and technology.
Your support creates a vibrant future for science and justice researchers. With your help, we can offer summer support for student research, allowing both undergraduate and graduate students interested in questions of science and justice to extend their projects beyond the normal confines of the academic year. This will both bolster their training and research experience and grow SJRC’s ability to make a difference in these crucial social issues that lie at the intersection of science, the environment, health and justice.
Thank you for making a more just world possible!
