Global Outreach

Student Overlooking City

What is GO!?

The mission of Global Outreach is to engage with, be challenged by, and further evolve the global relationships. Through these relationships, students understand and wrestle with social justice, solidarity, spirituality, and their Jesuit education. We seek to nurture civically-minded leaders for a global society who work for justice and solidarity in the world while being committed to lifelong learning and holistic transformation. As a program, we value sustainable relationships, anti-racism, solidarity, environmentalism and sustainability, community engagement, global citizenship, cultural exchange, education, and multiculturalism. 

We run projects on three cycles: winter, spring, and summer. Each project is led by a team leader and has ten spots for participants. In addition to the team leader, teams will be accompanied by a project chaperone. Teams meet for formation processes that support development toward engagement activities and give students the tools they need to work authentically with their community.
