Enacting Human Dignity, the Common Good, Solidarity with the Marginalized

The center puts Catholic social tradition into practice to fulfill the University’s mission to cultivate “a disciplined sensibility to the poverty, injustice and oppression that burden the lives of so many.”

 

Communities are our teachers, classrooms, and research partners

 

Community-engaged research, teaching and learning brings students, faculty, and community partners together for personal and social transformation.

Making a life-long commitment to social justice a distinctive part of a Notre Dame education

 

When we talk about Catholic social tradition (CST), we often talk about principles like the preferential option for the poor and commitment to the common good. Those are important, but CST is much more than principles.
