Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness and Social Action

The Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness and Social Action provides USD students, faculty, staff, and alumni opportunities to learn in partnership with the community, and make life-long commitments to promote social change and justice. Through active community-based engagement, students are able to link the learning in the classroom to the wisdom of the community through both curricular and co-curricular pathways.

Under the leadership of the Mulvaney Center, over 6,200 students and nearly 100 faculty have partnered with over 135 community organizations to total over 378,000 hours of engagement during the 2016-2017 academic year. This community engagement reflects the vision of USD to set the standard for an engaged, contemporary Catholic university where innovative changemakers confront humanity's urgent challenges.
