ELSJ Student Resources

The ELSJ undergraduate requirement is part of what makes a Santa Clara education truly unique. A University-wide requirement such as ELSJ currently exists within only a handful of universities across the U.S. and has a distinctly Jesuit flavor. Students engage in community-based learning while at the same time taking a course to help them make that experience both meaningful and educational.

This requirement can be satisfied in two ways: with one of the approved ELSJ courses or with an ELSJ Milestone. Community-based learning placement opportunities are available through Santa Clara programs such as Arrupe Engagement, the Kolvenbach Solidarity Program, and SCCAP.
