Merrimack College helps cultivate students’ spiritual and personal growth by sponsoring several community-service initiatives that encourage meaningful interactions with domestic and international communities.
We hope that these programs draw students closer to God through reflecting on how their communal experience of doing service and working toward justice connects with and influences their individual spiritual journeys.
Each opportunity provides students with rich experiences that engage skills they learn on campus and challenge them to expand their perspectives about themselves and their responsibilities to others within the context of a global society.
