Racial Equity and Justice Institute at BSU

The Leading for Change Racial Equity and Justice Institute (REJI) is a voluntary collaboration of institutions committed to racial educational equity.  Member campuses work to identify data-informed strategies intended to close racial educational equity gaps on our campuses and across higher education.  REJI member institutions meet monthly on their campuses to complete the REJI facilitator-created curriculum intended to increase our abilities to deepen our work for racial educational equity.  The entire consortium meets together virtually monthly in educational equity workshops, racial affinity caucuses and twice yearly day-long summits in order to build our skills in achieving educational equity and justice.
