Description

The Center for Service is a dynamic outgrowth of Seattle University's Jesuit tradition and mission. Reporting to the Office of the Provost, the Center for Service has two main goals: (1) to create strong reciprocal partnerships between the University and community or government organizations in order to foster social change and (2) to develop reflective, creative, compassionate and just student leaders. The Center works collaboratively with campus and community partners to implement programs in the following four areas: 1. Academic Service-Learning. The Center promotes the connection between academic learning and community involvement in order to further develop students' skills and values related to civic engagement and social justice. 2. Community Partnerships. With the needs of the community as its priority, the Center develops significant and sustainable community initiatives with a particular focus on neighborhoods adjacent to the University. 3. Coordination of Service Activities. The Center serves as the initial entry point on campus for students to gain knowledge and access to opportunities for community-based service. In addition, the Center is the initial point of contact for community organizations seeking volunteers or other University resources. 4. Student Leadership. Pursuing the University's mission "to empower leaders for a just and humane world," the Center offers opportunities for students to explore their skills and interests in leadership through service and justice activities.
