Loyola University Maryland

Center for Community Service and Justice (CCSJ)

Educating through Service, Journeying toward Justice

The Center for Community Service and Justice engages students and the broader Loyola community in education through service for a just and equitable world. There are a multitude of reasons to get involved in service; some people come for humanitarian purposes, some come motivated by their faith, and some come because it’s part of their coursework. Whatever your motivation is for visiting, we are delighted you are here.

Please take your time to learn about who we are—peruse our website, watch our introduction video, and browse our brochure. We hope you will stop by our office in Humanities 142, located across from the Diane Geppi-Aikens field, or contact us at ccsjsa@loyola.edu or 410-617-2380. We’d welcome the opportunity to meet you, talk with you, and explore which service experience(s) might be a good fit for you!

Change is upon us!

Given this critical time in Loyola University Maryland and Baltimore’s history, our almost 25-year-old Center for Community Service and Justice is in the process of reorganizing to integrate Loyola’s six-year-old York Road Initiative and deepen the partnerships between Loyola’s academic offerings and the needs and assets of our local community. As St. Ignatius Loyola challenged his companions to be “contemplatives in action” whose lives were completely devoted to “reading the signs of the times,” our Center has evolved, adapted and changed since its inception in 1992 to respond creatively to the pressing needs of our campus and our Baltimore community. Please stay tuned for updates on our work and progress and please reach out to us at ccsj@loyola.edu for ways you can join us in this work!
