Doerr Center for Social Justice

The Emmett J. and Mary Martha Doerr Center for Social Justice Education and Research is an independently funded center within Saint Louis University’s School of Social Work that promotes long-range solutions to social problems through education and research.

Established in 1996 thanks to an endowment by the Doerrs, descendants of a 1937 graduate, the center funds an annual Social Justice Night event, featuring important keynote speakers on social justice issues, as well as faculty research and awards to students for international travel and dissertations.
