Student Engagement

The Maguire Center helps students connect their intellectual, spiritual, and leadership capacities for service to the world around them; provides resources for them to accomplish "hands on" projects aimed at increasing student advocacy leadership, ethical reflection, and service skills; and emphasizes ethical leadership and day-to-day decision making.

The Center seeks to challenge and encourage the development of ethical discernment, imagination, and action among students.

How can you get involved with the Ethics Center? You don't have to be a student staff member to have an impact. Check out our upcoming events page and our Public Service Fellowship page. If you'd like to volunteer for one of our events, please contact us at
