Mission Statement:

In light of the ongoing, worldwide refugee crisis and Pope Francis’ call to global action in solidarity with refugees, the SJU Refugee Working Group is committed to educating our campus community about the urgency of the global refugee crisis, supporting local efforts to serve the needs of refugee families, and building a community of prayer and advocacy on behalf of refugees. We are inspired by SJU’s Jesuit mission and by the biblical command, “love your neighbor as yourself” (Lev. 19:18; Mk 12:31).
