Ecological Justice Initiative at CIIS
Promoting knowledge and practices that affirm human solidarity with the entire Earth community.
The goal of the Ecological Justice Initiative (EJI) is to investigate and implement the changes necessary to ensure that all of the University's activities are in line with commitment #5 of the CIIS Mission Statement - Advocate Sustainability & Social Justice - which states that: CIIS is committed to exploring and promoting knowledge and practices that affirm human solidarity with the entire Earth community. Recognizing that business as usual threatens the integrity of life itself on a planetary scale and perpetuates structures of oppression on a large portion of the human population, CIIS strives to generate creative alternatives leading to a just and flourishing world.
The CIIS community acknowledges that ecological citizenship is an ongoing process. As of the start of the Fall 2015 semester, an EJI committee is in the process of formation and will commit to growing its base of dedicated faculty, staff, and students by encouraging the larger CIIS community to join the effort to align CIIS with sustainable and equitable ecological policy.

CIIS Staff and Faculty were surveyed in March of 2016 about their commute to CIIS. In comparison to the rest of San Francisco, and especially the rest of the United States, our staff/faculty community is using public transportation at far higher rates.
