Partnerships and Fellowships

Saint Joseph’s service-learning community partnerships offer students the opportunity to understand systemic injustices by developing appropriate relationships through service.


Ties to the Community

The University has over 50 community partners – both in the greater Philadelphia area and around the world – that provide context and serve as a lived example of what it means to work for a more just society. Our partners include local groups such as Broad Street Ministry, Samuel Gompers School and Esperanza Health Center, as well as international organizations such as the Consulate of Mexico in Philadelphia, Magis Americas and the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia.

Global Connections

Fe y Alegria is a coalition of local organizations that offer educational opportunities to South America’s poorest regions. In 2001, Saint Joseph’s partnered with Fe y Alegria: Bolivia with the Faith-Justice Institute as the primary facilitator for the University. This partnership allows students, faculty and staff to participate in community-based research, professional collaboration, and immersion opportunities for both Fe y Alegria professionals and University professionals and students.
