Apply for new MU Restorative Justice Initiative 

The new MU Restorative Practices Initiative is seeking applications from students interested in learning restorative justice practices and shaping our community with a team of faculty, staff and community members. The initiative is specifically looking for second and third-year students in the 2023-24 academic year. 

The commitment includes attending six meetings annually over the course of two years, including restorative practice training and sharing your perspective as a student with faculty, staff and others. 

The benefits include contributing to building a healthy community on campus, receiving training and experience in restorative justice practices, engaging with partners across campus and community practitioners, developing a valuable real-world skill set and adding leadership experience to your resume. 

If you support humanistic responses to harm and conflict and want to be part of positive change, this opportunity is for you. For further information contact Dr. Louise Cainkar, professor of social and cultural sciences, or Dr. Gabriel Velez, assistant professor of educational policy and leadership.

Applications are due by Tuesday, Sept. 12. The application is found here
