Arrupe = Advocacy in Action

The Arrupe Social Justice Scholars Program teaches students how to recognize, examine, and change unjust structures embedded in societies and the world. 

In Arrupe, it's not enough to simply learn about injustice and inequality. We give students the tools they need to advocate for meaningful social change. Our academic courses enable students to analyze social justice issues and ask questions that help them to understand the social, cultural, political, economic, and moral dimensions of injustice. Outside the classroom, students explore ways of standing in solidarity with those facing oppression and injustice, learning from community partners and bearing witness to their struggles.

You can apply for the Arrupe Social Justice Scholars Program via the Mission-Based Programs Application. You'll find this application in your myJCU Gateway portal after you receive your admission decision.
