Judy L. Dougherty., Director

This minor provides students with academic and field experiences that focus on working with the poor and marginalized in society. Students of any major are able to select this minor. Through this minor, students will:

  1. Receive some formal orientation to the experience.
  2. Receive education, prior to and following the experience, directed at a better understanding of:
    1. The socio-economic factors and structures which negatively impact these groups,
    2. The basic principles of Catholic Social Teaching, and
    3. The realization that charity (direct service) is the most basic and minimal, not the most adequate, response to the needs of the poor.
  3. Be encouraged to become advocates of the poor and the marginalized after completing their education.

Students intending to pursue a minor in Franciscan Service and Advocacy should declare their intention to the Director of the Franciscan Center for Service and Advocacy and the Dean of their school (Liberal Arts, Business, Science).
