Postgraduate Service

Are you interested in pursuing a year or more of intentional service after graduating? Post-graduate service may be the route for you as a way to continue your learning, live out your values, explore new places, grow in a community of other volunteers, and utilize the skills and knowledge gained in your time at Gonzaga. Post-graduate service looks different for everyone and there are so many possible organization (both domestic and international) to partner with. CCE staff are here to support your discernment process and journey.
