Urban Justice Labs are innovative seminars designed to bring students into direct contact with complex questions about race and social justice within the context of American urban culture, architecture, humanities, and media.

Urban Justice Labs are innovative, mobile research seminars that probe and utilize the extensive collections of the Cornell University Libraries, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, and other relevant archives and resources to reflect the enormous challenge of racial and social justice in the United States.

A research stipend in the form of a Mellon Fellowship is available to enrolled students.
