    ARRUPE ENGAGEMENT | Virtual Program

    Arrupe Engagement places SCU students in the community to learn through hands-on experience with non-profit organizations, fulfilling the Experiential Learning for Social Justice (ELSJ) component of SCU’s Core curriculum. This year, our commitment to supporting our community is even more crucial than ever before as we face challenges associated with the multi-faceted pandemics of the Covid-19 virus, the economic downturn, racial oppression, and the casualties of environmental devastation. Starting in October, our community partner agencies and schools will be counting on SCU students to zoom in from across the nation (and the world) to serve as tutors for young children, advocates for educational, economic and racial justice, emissaries for voter registration in a crucial election year, educators for sustainable gardening techniques, and more.

    [Open only to SCU Students enrolled in ELSJ Course]

    WINTER BREAK VIRTUAL IMMERSIONS | US/Mexico Border & Central America

    This winter break the Ignatian Center will continue to strive for solidarity as we host two virtual Immersions; One on the US/Mexico Border and another that spans across communities in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Of course, it won’t be exactly the same as an in-person immersion but it will be powerful and provide participants with the opportunity to connect with other students and community leaders.

    Winter Break Immersions are now closed. Registration for future Immersions coming soon.
