Center for Service Learning

For more than 25 years the Center for Service Learning at Regis College has partnered with students, faculty and the community to educate, engage and connect with the public as positive agents of change for local and global justice. Our goal is for students to gain an understanding of their ability to impact their community and make a recognizable difference, but also to realize their responsibility to use their gifts and talents to contribute to a more just world.

An alternative pathway through the First Year Experience, En/Route seeks to link the practices of eloquentia perfecta with the skills and virtues required by another Jesuit ideal – that of being women and men in service of others – through a year-long, weekly service component.

Romero House

Romero House offers undergraduates in any field of study an opportunity to experience life in an intentional community in service of others. Residents spend a year committed to social justice and living out Archbishop Oscar Romero’s call to immerse themselves in the world.

Engaged Scholar-Activist Program

For more than ten years, the Regis College Engaged Scholar-Activist (ESA) program has called high-achieving, well-trained student leaders to work intentionally with academic departments and faculty to design, implement and evaluate curricular community engagement opportunities through the Center for Service Learning. In addition to this work, Engaged-Scholar Activists also serve as mentors and support for students working in the community while acting as direct liaisons between the CSL and community organizations. With unique job description, duties, and areas of interest, Engaged Scholar-Activists are widely accepted by faculty, community, and students alike, as colleagues in curricular and co-curricular work.

If you are a rising sophomore, junior or senior with a passion for social justice and a desire to enact change in the classroom, on campus, and in the community, please contact us at or visit the Center for Service Learning in Loyola 30 to pick up an application.

Because of the training requirement of Engaged Scholar-Activists, applications are due in mid-February for the following academic year, with training beginning in April. Workstudy funding is required for these positions.

“We believe students are powerful.”

Learning Through Service

As members of the human community, it is easy to forget, dismiss, or distance yourself from people living the reality of marginalization. We believe that as you work alongside your community, you develop an ability to listen and to learn from people whose voices are often not heard.
