Moreau Center for Service and Justice

In partnership with local and global communities, the Moreau Center for Service and Justice engages critical human and environmental concerns through active learning, mutually beneficial service, and experience-based leadership development rooted in Catholic social teaching.

We strive to fulfill this mission by offering opportunities to engage service, experience immersion, and explore leadership. Take a look through our website to learn more about getting involved.
