Recognizing a natural alignment between the philosophy of restorative justice and the guiding ideals of the Catholic social tradition, the RJNCC encourages Catholic campuses to articulate and cultivate restorative principles and to assist each other in strengthening interest, commitment, and implementation of restorative practices on their campuses.

THE RJNCC PROMOTES...

  • Community-building circles practices in classrooms, residential life, athletics, and student organizations;
  • Community-concern circles to improve campus climate, particularly around conflicts regarding race, religion, gender, and the red/blue political divide;
  • Restorative responses to student misconduct, including binge drinking, academic dishonesty, bias incidents, sexual misconduct, and intimate partner violence;
  • Restorative responses to faculty and staff misconduct and conflict that create a hostile workplace environment;
  • Civic engagement, including campus support, internships, and community engaged learning for community-based and prison-based RJ initiatives and in K-12 schools.
  • Scholarship on the theory and practice of RJ and the convergence of RJ philosophy and Catholic social thought.
