Service & Justice: Social Concerns Ministries
The Newman Center encourages all to live their faith in the world, understanding and acting upon the social dimensions of the Gospel in their everyday lives. You can answer this call to serve others by getting involved and making a difference in our many social concerns ministries.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and for the health and safety of our volunteers and all they serve, we're cancelling most volunteer participation in our service and justice ministries for now.
Spring Break Service Trips
Service trips engage students in service and justice projects around the city, country, and world! They is a great way to put your faith into action by reaching out to help others, build community and work towards social change. Any OSU student is welcome to apply, regardless of worldview or faith belief.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the OSU schedule the 2021 service trips have been postponed. The next service trip dates are TBD.
*Cost includes van rental, transportation, gas, most meals, trip fees, lodging, programming costs and a t-shirt! If you can serve as a volunteer driver who is 21 or over by the time of the trip, you will receive a $25 discount!
