Students painting a fence at Cultivating Community DayIt’s no accident that John Carroll University is located near Cleveland. Our commitment to social justice dovetails with the challenges facing many of the city’s communities. Every Friday night, volunteers for the Saint Benedict Joseph Labre Project fill two vans with food, which they offer, along with fellowship, to the city’s homeless population.

JCU students, faculty, and staff tackle environmental projects, community development and hunger and healthcare issues. They work one-on-one as mentors and tutors. They engage the world by traveling on immersion trips. And that just skims the surface. Our students contribute more than 65,000 service hours each year. Not only will you benefit from service to others, the community will as well.
