The Crossroads School Equity & Justice Institute


Head of School Bob Riddle first conceived of the Equity & Justice Institute several years ago, to provide more opportunities for students to develop as engaged citizens and to significantly bolster the School’s impact on the global community. Crossroads’ Board of Trustees approved the proposal in 2012 as part of the capital campaign Worlds Unimagined: The Campaign for Crossroads.

The Equity & Justice Launch Committee was instrumental in developing the goals and structure of the program.
