The Service-Learning program has leadership positions which assist community partners, service-learning students and service-learning faculty. In the Jesuit spirit of cura personalis (care of the whole person) student leaders work in intentional community and are supported and challenged to develop personally and professionally. Each position is described on the links below.
“The Service Scholar role has been one of the most formative experiences of my life thus far. The intentional model we use is holistic in design, embodying cura personalis, and has allowed for personal and professional growth that will be utilized in my post-graduate career. The safe and nurturing work environment challenged me to think beyond societal norms, question social constructs, and understand the deeper issues at the root of these problems. There is no doubt my time as a Scholar has helped me become a better student, employee, and global community member.”

“Working as a Placement Liaison has helped to transform my college experience as well as my transition into adulthood. Through it I have been able to develop more professionally, spiritually and personally into a person whose faith does justice. It has challenged my thinking of the world, social issues and societal structures, helped me to critically think about our community partners and what they provide to the areas they service and has taught me about intentionality, care and reciprocity to those you are in community with. It has been my pleasure working and serving the program and the communities that I have been a part of. “
