Moreau Center for Service and Justice

Laurie Laird, B.S., M.A., director

In partnership with local and global communities, the Moreau Center for Service and Justice engages critical human and environmental concerns through active learning, mutually beneficial service, and experience-based leadership development rooted in Catholic social teaching.
We strive to fulfill this mission by offering opportunities to:

  • Engage in service through one-time and on-going opportunities in the Portland Metro area.
  • Experience immersion locally, nationally, or internationally during academic breaks.
  • Explore leadership through student leadership opportunities in the Moreau Center's programs.

Additionally the office supports the Community Service Work Study program which provides students who are eligible for federal work study the opportunity to work with local non-profit organizations.
