Advocacy Education

Students who encounter injustice through service-learning and seminar immersions often return to campus asking how they should respond to what they have experienced. Advocacy education provides pathways and skills by which understanding becomes responsibility and students answer the call to be agents for justice.

Catholic Social Tradition (CST) often entails working for the transformation of unjust institutional structures. An important method for doing so involves examining existing policies and practices for how they affect community members’ welfare and their participation in defining and shaping the common good. We seek to equip our students with the skills necessary for challenging unjust policies and practices in clear and persuasive ways, and for seeking change in ways that help institutions better align themselves with the aims of justice. Following the CST principle of subsidiarity, we address particular needs in society at the most local level possible. The power to accomplish this work rests in the relationships that are cultivated.
