Service Hour Requirements
The Social Impact program focuses on four pillars: service learning, civic engagement, social justice and social entrepreneurship. Through this Social Impact Program we strive to help students find their purpose by connecting them to the broader community. Through new and existing partnerships with St. Louis area organizations, the program allows students to engage with diverse partners, learn from civic leaders, tackle projects with community impact, and put their creative ideas into action for lasting social benefit. If you have any ideas or questions please reach out to Becky Giunta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students recognize the dignity of all people and use their voice to challenge systems that do not allow people to flourish in our society.
Students learn how to become involved in civic organizations, to learn about the process of government and the opportunities to get involved in the process.
Students are called to action to respond to areas of deep human need, to challenge the dehumanizing aspects of their world, to increases awareness of ecological concerns and to promote a just and peaceful society.
Students participate in social entrepreneurship, which supports individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social, cultural, and environmental challenges while using business and collaborative strategies.
