At Saint Martin's, we strive to make a positive difference in the world through life-changing community partnerships, advocacy, and promoting respect and dignity for all.
Saints serve with heart
There are numerous opportunities to engage in service programs and initiatives across the campus community. Our service programs and initiatives summon in you an ethical call to personal and social transformation, to engage in authentic relationships with others and address the needs of our shared humanity. Your service experience with us will transform your life and perspective.
Students engage in a variety of service opportunities involving charity, relationship and social justice. One of our long-term partnerships has been serving at Community Kitchen for more than a decade.
Service programs situate students in direct contact with local, regional and international communities where they address real needs and promote social change. Whether participating in service immersion programs or volunteer and community service projects, students become engaged citizens within their chosen vocations.

Spanning the curriculum, our academic service-learning experiences interweave experiential learning within the classroom with engagement with off-campus communities. These programs enhance interpersonal and critical thinking skills and encourage students to connect academic learning with real-world problems and solutions.
