The Racial Equity and Justice Institute (REJI) is a collaboration of institutions including Salem State University committed to racial educational equity.
Colleges and universities collaborate 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 to build our skills in achieving educational equity and justice.
Salem State’s REJI team is committed to centralizing racial equity and justice into our institutional structures, cultures, practices, and policies. We are focused on a university-wide action planning guide to identify, implement, and assess our work in advancing racial equity in our institutional and departmental work.
