WKU Center for Citizenship and 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 has moved! We are now located in the Diversity & Community Studies Building, located at 1532 State Street. 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.
