Mission & Vision



The Center for Civic Justice provides services, support and coordination for programs and opportunities that cultivate, develop and empower active and engaged Seawolves to positively contribute to the betterment of their communities through awareness, advocacy and action.



Collaboratively, the Center for Civic Justice will be recognized as a primary facilitator of efforts that seek to improve the human condition at Stony Brook University and the wider global community. To do so, the Center for Civic Justice will:

    • Cultivate individuals who have the potential to be active and engaged in the issues affecting their communities;
    • Develop them to possess the tools and skills necessary to appropriately engage others in these issues; and
    • Empower them to take appropriate individual and collective actions to create a more civically just society.
