The Project at Syracuse University

We are the committee that steers The Moral Injury Project.  We are interdisciplinary collaborative of veterans, students, staff, faculty, and researchers aiming to address moral injury and raise awareness about the psychological and spiritual pain of those impacted by those invisible wounds. 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.
