ReJUS Mission Statement

Restorative Justice for the Underrepresented in Science (ReJUS) is an association of biomedical scientists at the University of Minnesota that is dedicated to the recruitment, support, and career advancement of students, post-docs, and faculty from historically underrepresented and disenfranchised communities in the biomedical sciences. Our mission is to 1) educate the scientific community on the issues of racial discrimination and institutionalized racism that permeate science and society; 2) promote the recruitment, retention and career advancement of students, postdocs, and faculty from historically under-represented and disenfranchised communities into the biomedical sciences; 3) assist them by offering activities and support which will meet academic, professional, and social needs in an atmosphere of cultural context and comfort; 4) facilitate community outreach events to assist the democratization of science.
