The Service & Justice Immersion Program at the Catholic University of America exists to create transformational relationships. To facilitate meaningful encounters that awaken in us a desire to passionately work for the common good. By sharing in and learning from the lived experiences of our sisters and brothers around the world, we create bridges of solidarity between our communities and peoples. 

By sharing in the faith, work, and culture of those who welcome us, these immersion trips become a life-changing moment in our spiritual and educational growth.

This experience challenges participants to integrate the values of the Gospel and the social teachings of the Church into their lives and to encourage change in the lives of those around them.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, decisions about the timing, location, and types of immersions trips for the 2020-2021 school year will be delayed until later in the Fall semester.
