Committee Members

The University Social Justice Committee (SJC) is made up of students, faculty, staff, and administrators from numerous divisions and departments of The New School who are invited to participate by the Provost’s Office. Members of the university community are encouraged to reach out to committee members to discuss interests, initiatives, challenges, and opportunities pertaining to social justice. If you are interested in contacting the SJC, reviewing members’ biographies may help you determine the appropriate member with whom to correspond.
