Welcome to WKU's Center for Citizenship & Social Justice
The Center for Citizenship & Social Justice (CCSJ) is committed to providing academic and extra-curricular experiences that empower WKU students, faculty and staff to address complex social issues in partnership with the communities we serve. The CCSJ is a program of WKU's Department of Diversity and Community Studies in the University College, and we are located in Tate Page Hall Room 110. You can Visit our office Monday - Friday 8:00 - 4:30pm to learn more about our programs and services. We also provide a space to read, study, and meet as a group.
CCSJ grew out of a merger of the former WKU ALIVE Center for Community Partnerships and the WKU Institute for Citizenship & Responsibility (ICSR) in the summer of 2016. After careful planning and preparation for a comprehensive, best practices model of scholarly community engagement, the new CCSJ offers the best of what the two former programs provided to WKU students, faculty, staff, and the communities we serve.
