Institutional Mission, Purpose, and Objectives
Social Justice University (SJU) is a innovative academic initiative dedicated to the promotion and research of Social Justice.
"Justice for all in access to health, wealth, happiness, safety, opportunities, and privileges within Global Society!"
SJU strives for a just society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity. SJU promotes the concept that all people share a common humanity and by extension have a right to equitable treatment, support for their human rights, and a fair allocation of community resources.
Social justice is achieved when people are not to be discriminated against, nor their welfare and well-being constrained or prejudiced on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or other characteristic of background or group membership.
SJU is a collaborative online institution, conceived by auto-proclamation on Social Justice Day (20 February) 2018 and self-identified as a research university completely independent of oversight and control by any government. Launched 12 months later in 2019, SJU now operates as an egalitarian, border-less, cooperative manifesting its de facto existence entirely online.
A research university. This institution does not partake in direct teaching which is seen as little more that the imposition of received wisdom in the form of established ideas and which punishes innovative and progressive thought.

Fighting the Patriarchy
As a progressive project. SJU diverges radically from patriarchy established, state controlled "graduate factories" designed make huge profits while churning out obedient, intellectually homogenized minds crammed with often obsolete information designed to perpetuate existing inequalities.
Instead SJU recognizes the academic worth of the experiences, ideas and theories of those dedicated to the promotion of Social Justice. Those individuals with thoughts, theories, concepts and agendas in the promotion of Social Justice have the opportunity to crystallize them by self assessment, publication of a Thesis, or by being nominated by a Third party.
In many ways it is a project in globalizing this concept by American feminist, journalist, and social political activist, Gloria Steinem.
"Every social justice movement that I know of has come out of people sitting in small groups, telling their life stories, and discovering that other people have shared similar experiences."
A Degree from SJU is a Badge of Honor for any advocate of Social Justice.
This institution is proudly decentralized from Government Controls
SJU has not sought, and does not feel compelled to seek, any form of Accreditation or third party endorsement.
The innate Transparency of the Social Justice University process, removes the need for SJU to participate in an expensive accreditation system. Since the middle of the twentieth century the burgeoning accreditation industry has burdened academia with ever growing costs whilst providing little or no useful information about institutional, academic or educational quality and no guarantees concerning the quality of a degree or graduate.
In contrast, our graduates, literally and figuratively, stand by their work, negating the need for any third party accreditation process to endorse their academic achievement.
Accreditation (why it doesn't matter)
Here are three facts about Accreditation that may surprise you:
Firstly, Accreditation is voluntary, not obligatory. Colleges can elect to be unaccredited.
Here is a quote from the US Department of Education on that matter:
“The database does not include a number of postsecondary educational institutions and programs that elect not to seek accreditation but nevertheless may provide a quality postsecondary education.”
Secondly, Accreditation is not an endorsement of quality.
Here is a quote from the US Department of Education on that matter:
"The accreditation database is brought to you by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Post-secondary Education (OPE). The database is provided as a public service without warranty of any kind. The database does not constitute an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Education of any of the educational institutions or programs."
Thirdly, the US Department of Education is limited to activities inside the Unites States. Here is a quote from the US Department of Education on that matter:
"The Secretary of Education’s recognition of accrediting agencies is limited by statute to accreditation activities within the United States. Although many recognized agencies carry out accrediting activities outside the United States, these actions are not within the legal authority of the Department of Education to recognize, are not reviewed by the Department, and the Department does not exercise any oversight over them."
SJU is not a US based University and is therefore ineligible for accreditation in the US.
