Alumnus McKellar Passionate About Community Organizing

Message

Joseph McKellar is a community organizer. At age 26, the 2004 USD alum is acting on his desire to be part of the solution. He credits the University of San Diego, where he graduated with a double major in Spanish and Political Science, for developing his ambition.

“USD really formed my conscience for peace and justice,” says McKellar, who works for the San Diego Organizing Project (SDOP). “I worked with University Ministry, going to Tijuana Spring Break and helping others. I attended the summer program in Guadalajara. Had I not attended USD I would not be an organizer. It helped me find my purpose. It’s a values-based institution and I got what I was looking for here.” (Full Story Inside USD)
