The Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice

Urban plunge small group picture

The Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice serves as a liaison between the Fordham community and the local communities. The Center helps connect students to service and social justice related community experiences through volunteer, service learning, and nonprofit internship opportunities. Within our Jesuit and Catholic tradition, we encourage students to stand in solidarity with those on the margins and help create a better world for all of us.
