The Ignatian Center is excited to have a new partnership with the Br. David Darst Center in Chicago, IL. By providing programs and partnerships with local community organizations, the Darst Center works to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the complex realities of injustice and obtain tools to take action. Through partnerships with local agencies, students will get to know people in Chicago directly impacted by injustices, challenge societal stereotypes, and break down barriers that continue to perpetuate inequity and indifference.

The Darst Center focuses on the intertwined nature of injustices by highlighting the systems of homelessness, food insecurity, incarceration, education, and immigration.  Participants will spend their days visiting partner agencies for experiential learning opportunities, engaging in education sessions and reflections designed to extend the work observed at partner agencies, and opportunities to reflect and create action plans to respond to the immersion experience in their own local spaces.
