Bloustein Social Justice Committee

Mission Statement

The Bloustein Social Justice Committee (BSJC) provides an independent space for students to embody, integrate, and act upon principles of social justice within the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the broader community. These principles, as defined within our values framework, are subject to periodic review by the membership. We approach the tasks of embodying, integrating, and acting upon social justice principles along four main avenues:

  1. Providing opportunities for Bloustein students to voice their ideas and concerns.
  2. Organizing formal and informal social justice activities for Bloustein students, staff, and faculty.
  3. Facilitating collaborative engagement between Bloustein and the surrounding community.
  4. Supporting the work of aligned institutional initiatives like the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) Task Force as well as engaging with the Bloustein Graduate Student Association (BGSA) Social Justice Chair.
