Grounded in Jesuit values and Catholic social principles, the Creighton Center for Service and Justice is committed to building a community of faith, in service, for justice. The CCSJ, a department of University Ministry is open to Student Coordinators of all backgrounds. CCSJ Student Coordinators become knowledgeable about the work of the CCSJ and the needs, gifts and opportunities of the broader community. They coordinate weekly local service; act as liaisons to other student, campus and community groups; represent CCSJ at University functions; help with office duties; and often initiate, organize and lead special projects and advocacy efforts. The position exists to empower students to facilitate, extend and deepen the service, faith and justice mission of Creighton University. There are paid and unpaid team positions available to approximately 25 students.
The CCSJ is looking for responsible students who wish to deepen their understanding of justice issues facing the Omaha, national and global communities through personal development, formation and direct service. Students must be self-starters and able to complete projects in a timely manner either individually or as part of a larger group. Qualified applicants should have strong inter-personal skills and a positive disposition, as they will be representing the CCSJ in the Creighton and Omaha communities. Please see team descriptions for more detailed information.
