You can prepare for your interview by thinking about social justice—how you would define it, why you are interested in it and what issues in particular attract your attention. You should also spend some time thinking about your service experiences -- particularly the experiences you've had as a Loyola student -- and the lessons you have learned through those experiences. Also, consider how you would recruit a diverse group of volunteers and facilitate service experiences for your peers.
