How does our Mission Statement relate to Service-Learning?

The University of Detroit Mercy, a Catholic university in the Jesuit and Mercy traditions, exists to provide excellent student-centered undergraduate and graduate education in an urban context.

A UDM education seeks to integrate the intellectual, spiritual, ethical, and social development of students.

The Founders’ Stories as examples

Catherine McAuley was a youth in Dublin 150 years ago during the Potato Famine and Plague.

Her own family became poor after her father died, and she moved from house to house.

Eventually she went to live with and care for a family who bequeathed her $1 million.

She used it to open “The House of Mercy.”

  • The women who helped her became the Sisters of Mercy, now serving in hundreds of hospitals and schools worldwide, especially with women and children.

The Founders’ Stories as examples

Ignatius, as a wealthy young man in Loyola, Spain 500 years ago, lived a life of conquest and pleasure. . . Until he was injured in battle.

With time to reflect, he noticed his inner desire to offer his life to God in service.

Determined to preach the Gospel and serve those in need, he was required to pursue a degree.

  • The men who followed him in his zeal for education, service, and preaching became the Jesuits, who teach and serve around the world.

Student Comment
  • “When you see an issue in someone’s life, you want to learn more.”

Eyler and Giles
  • “The learning we saw in our service-learning students was deeper than merely acquiring and spitting back a series of facts about a subject; it provided opportunities to … think critically about assumptions they had never questioned before.”
  • It also engaged our students hearts as well as their heads and helped them understand the complexity of what they were learning.
