About TSI

The Transformative Studies Institute (TSI) is a fully-volunteer social justice think tank managed and operated by a global team of scholar-activists, grassroots activists, and the concerned public.

Our goal is to establish a tuition-free accredited graduate school to foster interdisciplinary research that will bridge theory with activism and encourage community involvement to alleviate social problems. TSI publishes independent peer-reviewed journals including Theory in Action, operates a speakers’ bureau, fellowship program, and various community outreach projects, and provides consulting services and custom policy papers.
