The Schlegel Center for Services and Justice engages students in community service, reflection and action on behalf of justice and sustainability. The SCSJ works tirelessly to serve the underserved, empower the powerless and form leaders educated in the Jesuit tradition.
The center instills a lifelong concern for the pursuit of justice, giving students the chance to serve locally and nationally through programs like Service & Justice Trips, the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice and more.
Each year, hundreds of SCSJ students volunteer thousands of hours to service in Omaha and beyond. With your support, we can keep this essential program going strong — for our students, for our communities!
