Graduating seniors honored for commitment to postgraduate service  ND News, May 19, 2014

The Center for Social Concerns hosts a Service Send-Off Ceremony and reception during Commencement Weekend for all of the seniors who are planning to commit to one or more years of full-time service and for their families. Seniors who have participated in the past have committed to serve with programs like ACE, Americorps, ECHO, Peace Corps, and Teach for America ,as well as fellowships and other nonprofit opportunities committed to social justice.


This is a wonderful event and opportunity for students and families to meet and support each other and to be honored by the Center's staff, Fr. Jenkins, and representatives of the University. The ceremony includes music by the Folk Choir, reflections from guest speakers, as well as an opportunity for each senior to be recognized by name and receive a small gift for the journey ahead.
