A National Forum on Innovation and Collaboration
Founded in 2007, the Center for Institutional and Social Change (the “Center”) has become a facilitator of innovation and collaboration for scholars, practitioners, and students striving to address structural inequality through institutional transformation. Housed at Columbia Law School and begun as a pilot collaboration with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF), the overarching goal of the Center is to develop new frameworks, strategies, roles, and institutions for effective institutional and social change directed at addressing structural inequality and achieving inclusive institutions.
Please visit the Center’s website – www.GroundShift.org, an interactive, on-line community developed to share knowledge about innovative frameworks and strategies for advancing full participation in the institutions defining 21st century “citizenship.” This site responds to the urgent need to rebuild the capacity of institutions to address pressing public problems in a democracy. GroundShift.org links community members to usable knowledge about new approaches for addressing structural inequality through institutional transformation.
