The Project at Syracuse University

We are the committee that steers the Moral Injury Project. We are an inter-disciplinary, cross-campus collaborative of veterans, students, staff, faculty, and researchers aiming to address moral injury and raise awareness about the psychological and spiritual wounds endured by those that have sacrificed themselves for our freedom. We are also chaplains, professors, administrators, artists, and military family members; we are sufferers and survivors of moral injury. As practitioners of various disciplines, arts, faiths, and spiritual perspectives, we have united to embrace the multiple forms of dialogue that address moral injury and foster moral repair. In doing so, we situate ourselves within the broader context of acknowledging moral injury, both as activists working to increase understanding and as facilitators working to promote healing and integration.
