Summer Service Learning Program

Rooted in the Catholic social tradition and in collaboration with Notre Dame Clubs and site partners across the country, the Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) is a three-credit Theology course with eight-week immersive service placements in communities on the margins of society. Students develop a deeper conviction of the kinship of all persons made equally in God’s image, a more disciplined awareness of the causes and effects of social injustice, and a lifelong commitment to vocations marked by solidarity and the pursuit of the common good.

SSLP placements fill on a rolling basis from November 1 through February 1, 2019. The application window is now closed, but if you have a strong motivation to still apply, please contact Emily Garvey.

The SSLP course fulfills a requirement for several minors—Poverty Studies Interdisciplinary Minor, Catholic Social Tradition Minor, Compassionate Care Minor, Latino Studies Minor, Sustainability Minor, and the Education, Schooling, and Society Minor (departmental approval required). 

An A-F letter graded version of the course with additional academic requirements can count towards the Theology major/minor. Contact Ben Wilson for more details.
