For the past 32 years, the Center for Social Concerns has offered myriad opportunities for students to think about and respond to various problems that communities face here in South Bend, throughout the United States, and around the world.

Social concerns seminars are one-credit engaged learning courses that require students to do social analysis, work with community partners around the country, and reflect on their service experience. Most community immersion components take place during fall, winter, and spring break and require students to travel to different locations and address social concerns topics in context.

Students examine social issues from various perspectives, read relevant texts, study the role of Catholic social tradition, share in the life of the communities they work with, and participate in creating active learning communities during the entire course of the seminar.
