Community Engagement

engage

Broaden, enhance and enrich your faith during your time at Duquesne by getting involved with community engagement through Spiritan Campus Ministry. Rooted in Catholic social teaching and inspired by our Spiritan charism, our vision for community engagement is to minister to the marginalized in both our local and the greater global community, working toward social justice in all corners of the world.

Spiritan Campus Ministry is encouraged by our Spiritan tradition of ministry of the marginalized and liberation from the chains that bind. We promotes the Spiritan idea of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) in our engagement with the local and global community.

Here are some of the opportunities that our students and staff participate in:

Cross Cultural Mission Experiences

  • Our mission work stretchs from downtown Pittsburgh across to other countries. Students work to remedy the hardships, poverty and social injustice that people in other cultures experience. Read the stories of those who have been there.
  • New applications will be available in the Fall 2014

Evergreen

  • An environmentally conscious organization that helps to educate the DU community on sustainability on-campus and works to keep our local neighborhoods clean and green.

St. Vincent De Paul Society

  • This society brings hope and compassion to those with all types of need and works with the homeless of downtown Pittsburgh.

Fair Trade at Duquesne

  • Student committee working together to spread Fair Trade Awareness on Duquesne University's campus.

The Laval Project

  • The project allows students to learn about the history of our bordering neighborhoods, the Hill District, and learn how you can affect positive change through education, reflection, and responsible action.

Consistent Ethic of Life

  • A philosophy formulated by Cardinal Joseph Bernardin and has found its way into many outreach opportunities, primarily with Holy Family Institute, a residential and educational facility for children that have been removed from their homes.

Catholic Social Justice

  • Encouraged by our Spiritan tradition that is dedicated to the ministry of the marginalized and liberation from the chains that bind, Spiritan Campus Ministry promotes the Spiritan idea of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) in our engagement with the local and global community. Rooted firmly in Catholic social teaching and inspired by our Spiritan charism, our vision for community engagement is not to be seen as separate from our liturgical life.
