Last week, ACCU released the Spring 2015 issue of Update, its quarterly newsletter. You can read it in its entirety here, but be sure to pay special attention to the sections devoted to peace and justice. These highlights include:
- Scranton Students Learn Homelessness Firsthand by spending a day and night on the streets confronting similar challenges as those which persons experiencing homelessness may face.
- Carlow Fights Hunger with Pottery by asking their art students to create clay bowls which patrons at a fundraising dinner use and then take home to remind them of the importance of fighting hunger.
- Caldwell Students Serve in Belize and gain perspectives on poverty, priorities, and happiness.
- Undocumented Students Appeal to Congress members who are alumni of Catholic colleges and universities by asking them to support Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
- Mount Saint Vincent Students Engage the World by participating in international service learning.
- ‘Compassionate Competitor’ leads Spalding University to log 1.6 million service hours and engage with their charism.
- Manhattan Professor Teaches the Holocaust and Islam by portraying them both as stories of faith and catastrophe.
