Center for Social Concern

Get Involved through Campus Ministry's Center for Social Concern

If you keep up with the news, it's easy to get cynical and try to hide from the world. Faith calls us to the opposite response: hope and action. Feed the hungry. Shelter the homeless. Care for the sick. Tutor the kids who need help. Protect the vulnerable. Care for God's creation. Learn more about social problems. Lobby political and economic leaders to make positive changes. You can answer your call by getting involved in the multitude of CSC opportunities.

Tu Luz Trasciende (Your Light Transcends)

I was moved by her raw emotions as she shared her story and own experiences during the dictatorship, which lasted from 1973 to 1990. When we left the location of the mural, she gave us all hugs and said how she was so grateful we wanted to hear her story. She also said that giving her hugs gave her a sense of solace and hope for her father. The respect and compassion she showed us, without knowing us for very long, reminded me that caring for the people around me is one of the most important things in life. Your light transcends ( Tu Luz Trasciende).

Peace Corps

I came to college pre-determined to major in Pre-Medicine with the intention of going to medical school, but the complexity of one particular experience prompted me to change my thoughts about my future. It was the summer after freshman year, when I went on a Cross-cultural immersion trip to Cameroon through Campus Ministry.
