Social Justice

The UA Little Rock Social Justice Award recognizes a faculty member’s commitment to the broad concept of social justice through teaching, public service, and research or creative endeavors. Social justice is the view that everyone deserves economic, political, and social rights and opportunities. Social justice workers aim to open the doors of diversity, equity, and inclusion for everyone, particularly those in greatest need.
