csc mission statement

The Center for Social Concern, as part of the University of Dayton Campus Ministry, has as its mission to seek to unite faith and action for justice.

This mission is carried out by numerous opportunities for reflective service, service-learning, and education and advocacy for justice. Catholic social teaching is the foundation and guide of this mission, and is integrated into all of the Center's programs. While undergraduate students are most often involved in the Center, our mission is to integrate the moral principles and academic learning of the University community by encouraging ethical responsibility for sustaining and enhancing human dignity and social justice.

The strategy for achieving this mission is two-fold: First, through justice education, the Center promotes within the University community the faith-inspired "practice" of social justice. Second, in the area of service-learning, the Center provides leadership and resources so that the University of Dayton undergraduate experience challenges students to become people of service.
