At the core of Emmanuel's mission is a focus on social justice. Students are challenged to become contributing members of the local community and the global society. From annual new student days of service and service-learning courses to Alternative Spring Break and the hours volunteered by student clubs and athletic teams, our students truly embrace this challenge and recognize the importance of giving back. In fact, each year 80% of our students volunteer countless hours to helping others.
The three main branches of community service outreach available at Emmanuel are the Jean Yawkey Center for Community Leadership, The Carolyn A. Lynch Institute and Campus Ministry. The College also offers service opportunities through partnerships throughout the city as well.
