The Center for Community Work and Learning

We facilitate student leadership and positive community impact through service-learning and student employment.


  • our mission

    Live the legacy.

    Community Work and Learning supports opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of social responsibility and refine their practice of ethical leadership in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph. For an overview of our program successes and data, view our annual report.


  • service-learning

    Learn through community partnership.

    Each semester we offer over 40 undergraduate and graduate service-learning courses, providing students with opportunities to apply their learning to real-world contexts and engage in critical reflection.


  • student employment & leadership

    Put the liberal arts to work.

    Our student employment programs, both on campus and with local nonprofits, foster investment in community, professional development, and collaboration.
