This report contains a proposal of a task force of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) for the development of an ACCU program on education for justice. It is believed that the Catholic community must be educated in the tradition of Catholic social thought, and a learning environment must be created that reflects a commitment to justice and an openness on the part of Catholics to change personal attitudes and behavior. After a foreward on education and justice by Alice Gallin, the following four perspectives are presented: "Education for Social Justice--A Christian Perspective," by William J. Byron; "Justice and Peace: The Place and the Potential of Colleges and Universities," by J. Bryan Hehir; "Education in a Global Perspective," by Lawrence T. Murphy; and "Justice--What Is It All About?" by David Burell. Seven institutions were chosen as pilot schools to implement the proposal, and two of the pilot programs are described. Ray Jackson and Dan Regan describe the program at Villanova University and Ken Jamieson describes the program at the University of Notre Dame. Short descriptions are also provided of each of the seven pilot schools. Descriptions of programs at other schools are as follows: Joseph Fahey discusses the model at Manhattan College; Suzanne DeBenedittis discusses the Loyola-Marymount University program; Don Post describes the global studies program at Saint Edward's University; and Joseph Fahey describes the M.A. program in religious studies at Sacred Heart University.
