The Five Pillars — Service
St. Joseph's University, New York students routinely respond to the needs of the larger world.
A dedication to service is at the heart of many of the programs, clubs and classes at St. Joseph’s. Students often look for new ways to serve others, whether it’s through study abroad programs, community service activities, service clubs, or raising money for a cause they believe in. The volunteer projects provide rewarding opportunities to help others and to be transformed by the experience.
- Join one of our popular service-learning study abroad programs.
- Volunteer at one of our food and toy drives, benefitting local organizations.
- Become a member of one of our service clubs and organizations, including S.T.R.I.P.E.S. (Students Taking a Role in Positively Empowering Society).
- Raise money for a cause you believe in — like the women’s volleyball team’s annual breast cancer awareness fundraiser.
- Go on a mission trip with Campus Ministry.

"I enjoy seeing the willingness and the openness of our students, as they learn about the grace and the gift that service is. The mission and the legacy that was the Sisters of St. Joseph foundation, beginning in 1650, continues on today at St. Joseph's University."
