In creating the Mercy Center for Service, Carlow University provides a campus-wide, collaborative base for four key programs: Alternative Spring Break, Annual Day of Service, the Office of Service Learning, and the Grace Ann Geibel Institute for Justice and Social Responsibility.
How Carlow's Mercy Center for Service joins forces for good:
The Mercy Center for Service communicates volunteer opportunities to the Carlow community to create awareness of societal issues and needs. Communicating promotes inspiration of a campus-wide ethic of service continuing the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy.
The Mercy Center for Service coordinates connections between nonprofit organizations and volunteers from the Carlow community who want to serve. Nonprofits can register with the Mercy Center for Service to create an ongoing partnership.Coordinating promotes interaction with community partners and helps them increase their service capacity through our contribution of time and talent as a hands-on co-worker in service to another.
The Mercy Center for Service fosters collaborations between volunteers in the Carlow community who want to do service individually or with a group. Collaborating promotes personal transformation through understanding and reflecting on social and moral challenges impacting individuals and communities, locally, and globally.
