Service and Social Justice Trips
The Campus Ministry Department sponsors two summer service/immersion trips each year:
- ILAC Service Immersion Trip to the Dominican Republic: each summer 10-12 students participate in an experience with the Creighton University ILAC program in the Dominican Republic. Students have the opportunity to live with families in a rural Domincan campo and participate in a community service project.
- Rosebud Reservation Service Immersion Trip: each summer, 12-16 students travel to the Rosebud Reservation to work with Tree of Life Ministry. Students have the opportunity to participate in many activities to learn about Lakota spirituality and culture and volunteer on service projects through Tree of Life Ministry.
The Campus Ministry Department also sponsors two social justice trips each year:
- In November of each year, students participate in the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice in Washington, DC. This is a gathering of students from Jesuit Universities and High Schools which focuses on social justice issues relevant in our local and global communities. Following the conference, students participate in an advocacy day on Capitol Hill.
- In January of each year, students participate in the annual March for Life in Washington, DC. This is an opportunity for students to be witnesses for a consistent ethic of life and to encourage our nation's leaders to enact policies that protect life from womb to tomb.
