An Ambition to Serve
Fourteen graduates volunteered for long-term service projects with nonprofit organizations in states throughout the country. Organizations and programs include the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Americorps, Capuchin Youth & Family Ministries, Mercy Volunteer Corps and Teach for America. Since 1983, 493 graduates have chosen full-time volunteer service over employment. The graduates gathered with President Kevin P. Quinn, S.J., for a reception during commencement weekend.
