Restorative Justice Intiative


Rush University Restorative Justice Initiative began a small group of dedicated students to bring restorative justice practices to the university. The group’s mission is to bring restorative justice practices to all colleges at Rush University. The core values of the group is to practice restorative justice within the classroom and the clinical settings, utilizing restorative communication tools to resolve conflicts, and create and build community. We believe that creating a restorative culture within the Rush University community will develop learners into better clinicians and scientists by promoting collaboration at all levels.
