Social Justice

Are you looking for ways to live your faith beyond the walls of your church, synagogue, mosque, or other sacred space?

Do you believe that how you live is as important as what you believe?

Do you agree with Alice Walker that the pursuit of social justice is our “rent for living on this planet?”

Are you inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s call to “be the change you want to see in the world?”


If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, Campus Ministry's Social Justice programming is for you!

A core principle of Ignatian Spirituality is that faith does justice. We live out a “faith that does justice” in a variety of ways across SU’s campus, and one of the primary places we do this is through Campus Ministry’s Social Justice programming. You can volunteer for service activities, engage in discussion groups, attend awareness-raising events, go on domestic and international immersion trips, join others in simple and community living, and advocate for justice on campus and around the state.

Several of our programs, like the Juvenile Justice Mentors Program, were created by SU students. Other programs, like the St. James Cathedral Kitchen homeless outreach program and Mexico Social Justice Immersion, have been changing lives for decades. Engaging justice is at the heart of Ignatian Spirituality and the mission of SU’s Campus Ministry. 

If you share this passion, feel free to check out some of our programming on our website under the "Social Justice" tab or come by the Campus Ministry office (STCN 120) between 8:00am and 4:30pm Monday – Friday.
