Formation and Connections


We encourage students to join one of the below opportunities to network, engage, learn, and meet other passionate student leaders also working to build a more just world.

Students participating in these opportunities will:

  • Become faith justice leaders among their Jesuit/Catholic University peers
  • Lead others in engaging the legislative system to change structures with and on behalf of the poor and marginalized
  • Gain connections for personal and professional discernment and development in fields including social justice policy
  • Reflect on their own talents and passions as they connect with the needs of our world
