Urban Needs Introduced Through Experience is Loyola's local, urban immersion program. UNITE weekends run from 5 p.m. Friday to 4 p.m. Sunday, and are offered 2-3 times per year. They offer students, faculty, administrators and staff an opportunity to gain greater insight into the realities and concerns of people who are materially poor and/or experiencing homelessness in Baltimore.
The weekend includes an experience of direct service in a meal program, factual information on poverty and homelessness, reflection, discussion and activities. As part of connecting service to faith, a Retreat to the Streets UNITE will be offered once a year for students who would like to explore a deep connection between their service and spirituality.
