Service & Solidarity Missions are student-led service trips overseen by Campus Ministry during winter and spring breaks. In 2015 Service & Solidarity Mission trips celebrated their 25th year with 14 domestic service trips and trips to Costa Rica and Haiti. These mission trips enable students to learn about Catholic social teaching while spending time living and working with those most in need.
The "hands on" nature of this program, focusing on service and community, gives participants the chance to build and renovate homes, tutor children, serve in soup kitchens, as well as to visit families and individuals in the community.
