WINTER 2021 STUDENT INVOLVEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
The Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education provides opportunities for SCU Students to deepen their understanding of social justice issues. From virtual immersion "trips" to Bannan Forum lectures, students are able to experience the true meaning of a Jesuit Education and become men and women for others.
SPRING BREAK VIRTUAL IMMERSIONS | New Orleans & US/Mexico Border
This spring break the Ignatian Center will continue to strive for solidarity as we host two virtual Immersions; One on the US/Mexico Border and another in New Orleans, Louisiana. 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.
Registration for Spring Break Immersions opens January 6, 2021.
JEAN DONOVAN FELLOWSHIP
The Jean Donovan Summer Fellowship (JDF) is named in honor of Jean Donovan, an American woman who lived, worked, and died in solidarity with the impoverished and oppressed of El Salvador in the 1980s. This Fellowship is designed to support undergraduate students who desire to deepen their understanding of social justice issues through a summer community-based learning experience.
Application for the Jean Donovan Fellowship opens January 15.
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. Our community partner agencies and schools continue to count 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, educators for sustainable gardening techniques, and more.
[Open only to SCU Students enrolled in ELSJ Course]
The Ignatian Fellowship offers SCU undergraduates the opportunity to deepen their commitment to social justice through an entirely virtual community-based learning experience. Ignatian Fellows will receive funding to work with a non-profit of their choice. Think about it as an internship with enhanced reflection, community, and support!
Registration is now closed.
