One of the hallmarks of Jesuit education is to teach and act with justice, with care and in service of others. With a holistic education and service-drive mission in mind, the Albert S. Foley, S.J. Community Service Center and the Office of Residence Life are dedicated to provide students with experiences that allow for growth through their involvement in their residential community, campus community, and the Mobile community. Students will receive opportunities to take part in intentional and meaningful experiences in service to others. The knowledge and skills gained from community interactions in their halls and their service sites off-campus will enable students to actively engage in transformative experiences in service to others.
Student Learning Outcomes:
The “Why” (Self): Through service experiences and community engagement, students will learn long-term impacts on the importance of serving their local and global communities.
Others: Through engagement with the community, students will develop awareness and appreciation for individuals with various backgrounds, ethnicities, beliefs, and cultures.
Community: Students will apply knowledge and skills learned for continued development around privilege, oppression, discrimination, bias, and their effects on the community.
Students will participate in a 3 day retreat prior to Fall 2019 semester, commit to 30 hours of service (3 hours a week) each semester, participate in reflection, and attend monthly seminars. CLIMB course credit will be offered to those interested.
