Service and Social Justice

Salve Regina students have a long history of service and work for social justice, both locally and across the globe. The social justice teachings of the gospel and the church compel us to put our faith into action. The needs are many, so there is never a lack of ways to make a difference.

Service in the Community

Through the Mercy Center for Spiritual Life, students engage in a variety of service activities ranging from weekly commitments to single-day efforts. Students can cook for the homeless at the McKinney Shelter, visit the elderly at St. Clare Nursing Home, staff a booth for the Special Olympics, clean up local beaches for Earth Day, work with children at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center or rake, mulch and paint for Rebuilding Together.
