Education

We serve to expand the knowledgebase of women’s issues by professors and students working together to conduct and share research. We also have an inter-disciplinary Women and Justice Minor, one of the first at a Christian university, to provide Vanguard students with a theoretical and practical foundation to improve the lives of women and their communities here and around the world.

Associate Director Derek Marsh works with the UNODC and has trained front line anti-TIP and smuggling of migrants practitioners using the Better Migration Management curriculum in Kenya and Rwanda.

The Global Center for Women and Justice provided so many opportunities for me to get involved in the anti-trafficking world. I studied abroad in Italy and Argentina, attended every Ensure Justice Conference, and took as many HT courses as possible to learn from experts. In our Human Trafficking 101 course, one of our speakers was from International Sanctuary, a nonprofit who's mission is to empower women and girls to embrace their true identity and worth. I just celebrated 4 years at International Sanctuary and it's all thanks to the GCWJ for always providing amazing opportunities for their students.
