Modeling Justice in Higher Education

Modeling Justice in Higher Education

(p.135) Eight Modeling Justice in Higher Education
The Aims of Higher Education

Erin I. Kelly

University of Chicago Press

This chapter develops an ideal of the university as a model of justice, which emphasizes that the requirements of justice demand addressing historically rooted sources of exclusion and promoting an inclusive culture in the university community. The author argues that the extent to which the university is able to model justice depends on its ability to realize the value of fair equality of opportunity and participatory democratic values. She then considers the reforms to university admissions policies, faculty scholarship, campus climate, and pedagogy that would be necessary in order to realize these values. Finally, she claims that Were the university successfully to model justice, faculty and students broadly representative of the wider community would be in a better position to influence the social role and contribution of the university, thereby raising the prospects for the university to justly contribute to the broader social good.

Keywords:   justice, exclusion, fair equality of opportunity, democratic, values, admissions policies, scholarship, campus climate, pedagogy, social good
