The Feerick Center develops academic courses related to social justice and poverty reform. We support scholarship in these areas and are particularly interested in multidisciplinary approaches to the study of poverty and in institutional reform through non-traditional, non-litigation means, including problem solving.
Some of our academic efforts involve special programs through the Fordham University Consortium on Social Justice and Poverty, which the Center helps to support. We also organize conferences and sponsor summer fellowships.
Our faculty director is Professor Elizabeth B. Cooper.
The Feerick Center has developed a number of course offerings, including seminars and the Social Justice Clinic.
