Education and Social Justice Project

Georgetown features the 2013 Fellows Project Presentation

In early 2010 two Georgetown University Centers—the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service—created the Education and Social Justice Project to engage students and build knowledge about the deep connections between global challenges of poverty and education. Only through better access to education will the world’s poor be able to seize opportunities in an increasingly global economy. While policy analysts have documented the widespread failure of governments to meet this imperative, we still know relatively little about successful local efforts led by religious communities to advance economic and social development through education.
The project provides several students with summer research fellowships to travel abroad for an in-depth examinations of innovative initiatives, with a focus on the work of Jesuit secondary and post-secondary institutions. Under faculty supervision, the students gather information through interviews, analyze best practices, and share their reports and conclusions with a wider global audience.

The Education and Social Justice project is administered by Erin Coleman of the Berkley Center. Andria Wisler, director of Georgetown's Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service, and Katherine Marshall of the Berkley Center serve as academic advisors. It was created through the generosity of Rodney Jacob.

>> During summer 2013, the project's fourth year, Sarah Baran was hosted by Protagonizar in Argentina, Margot “Annie” Dale by the Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang in Cambodia, Nick Dirago by Fe y Alegría in Peru, and Elisabeth Lembo by the Jesuit University of Krakow in Poland.

>> During summer 2012, the project's third year, Charlotte Markson was hosted by the Catholic University of Uruguay (Universidad Católica del Uruguay), Lisa Frank by Fe y Alegría Bolivia, Shea Houlihan by OCER Campion Jesuit College in Uganda, and Masha Goncharova by a series of Russian Orthodox schools and seminaries in France. Their report brings together the main results of the field work, including background analysis of each of the initiatives and excerpts from extended interviews with educators and activists in each country.

>> In the project's second year, Deven Comen was hosted by St. Xavier's College in Mumbai, Conor Finnegan by the Jesuit Institute South Africa in Johannesburg, and Codie Kane by the Universidad Centroamericana José Simeón Cañas (UCA) in San Salvador, El Salvador. Their report again brings together the main results of the field work, including background and analysis of each of the initiatives and excerpts from extended interviews with educators and activists in each country.

>> In its first year, Ryan Covington was hosted by St. Aloysius Gonzaga School in Nairobi, Kenya, Brian Dillon by Ateneo de Manila University in Manila, Philippines, and Cindy Shuck by the Universidad Alberto Hurtado in Santiago, Chile. Their report brings together the main results of the field work, including background and analysis of each of the initiatives and excerpts from extended interviews with educators and activists in each country.
