Global Partnerships and Outreach

Sometimes, our community is around the block. And sometimes, it's on a different continent.

Students at our Rome campus join Italian high school students for "Be the Difference — Never Again." Together, they visit graves of fallen American soldiers. Students at our Dublin campus visit retired priests at Kimmage Manor, spreading cheer and forming lasting bonds.

Our Spiritan-driven efforts in Africa—from teaching and conducting research to delivering valuable supplies—are another great example of how the Duquesne community extends to any place neighbors need a hand and we can make a difference:

  • Academic program collaborations with Spiritan parishes, schools and hospitals in nursing, health sciences, pharmacy, education and theology
  • Charitable contributions of educational, medical and other supplies in Spiritan-served areas throughout Africa
  • Environmental and sustainability research, consulting, teaching exchange and study abroad programs
  • Theology programs through schools and institutes in several countries, preparing Duquesne graduates in Africa to influence the world.

Duquesne's 2018-2023 Strategic Plan calls for an expansion of global engagement. As we continue building on our existing relationships in Africa, we'll also create and strengthen connections in other parts of the globe where Spiritans are present or their mission of serving others is needed.
