Service is an integral part of JCU’s Jesuit mission. Students engage in the realities of others by being with and helping others throughout the Cleveland area and abroad.

Social justice is defined in Pius XI’s encyclical as follows: “It is the function of social justice to require of each individual that which is necessary for the common good. Consider a living organism: The good of the whole is not being properly secured unless arrangements are made for every single member to receive all that it needs to fulfill its own function. The same is true of the constitution and government of a community: The common good of a society cannot be provided for unless each individual member, a human being endowed with the dignity of personality, receives all that s/he needs to discharge his/her social function.”

Campus Ministry engages students in social justice related activities through immersion experiences, advocacy trips, speakers, workshops, and much more!
