Auburn Seminary is partnering with Philander Smith College (PSC) and Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation (WRF) to re-envision and relaunch The Social Justice Institute and support Little Rock, AR as a regional faith-rooted social justice hub.
This will be done in a three-way effort to develop a concrete, actionable plan with clear accountability and a focused vision. PSC has a rich history to honor: it was originally a college to educate freed slaves after the Civil War, and is recognized as a pioneer during the civil rights movement, as many of its students engaged in organized resistance against segregation laws in Little Rock and across the nation.
Together with WRF, Auburn is honored to be a part of the PSC tradition of cultivating future leaders of social justice. Check out the strategic plan, Think Justice 2.0, for more details on this partnership.
