Charlotte Racial Justice Consortium 

The Charlotte Racial Justice Consortium (CRJC) is a partnership between Central Piedmont Community College, Johnson C. Smith University, Johnson & Wales University - Charlotte Campus, Queens University of Charlotte, and the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.


Our vision: A Charlotte community that understands its history of race and racism, believes in our shared humanity, embraces a more comprehensive narrative on race, and develops faculty, staff, and student leaders who work across our campuses towards truth, racial healing, and transformation.    


In 2020, the CRJC was selected by the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) as a Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Campus Center.
