Moreau Center for Service and Justice

The Moreau Center for Service and Justice offers a variety of opportunities to engage with the community—locally, regionally, and internationally—and learn about critical social issues. In the days leading up to Orientation, the Plunge Into Your Neighborhood experience immerses first-year students in their new community. There are more "immersions" during fall, winter, spring, and summer breaks. The Moreau Center can help you connect with a community partner whose mission and outreach resonates with you.
