Students at the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice

Seeking to embody the Gospel call through Augustinian Tradition and Catholic Social Teaching, the Campus Ministry Center for Service and Social Justice is committed to transforming the minds and hearts of the Villanova community through service, advocacy, and justice education. Calling the Villanova community to commit to the challenge of solidarity and activism, we prophetically work for the common good through reciprocal partnerships and accompaniment with our local and global neighbors.
