Mission & Vision


Through our research, teaching, and service, we advance collective understanding of complex social and cultural realities. We foster in students a curiosity about the world around them and we guide them in developing the theoretical, methodological, and analytical tools to engage with the social world at personal, organizational, and systemic levels.


We envision a world where everyone possesses the skills to question and understand the social influences that shape the human experience, with the aim of creating a more just society.
