Academic Service Learning
"Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn."
"Deeply rooted in the centuries' old tradition of Jesuit education, Gonzaga University aspires to develop the whole person through contemplation, intellectual dialogue, and engagement within a vibrant Jesuit, Catholic, and humanistic learning community. We exist to develop generations of leaders whose actions reflect a faith that promotes justice, the pursuit of truth, a dedication to service, and a commitment to ethics and the common good." - Gonzaga Vision Statement
