Soup with Substance highlights service with the Arrupe Center, Jan. 31

Soup with Substance will highlight the Arrupe Center for Community Service and Social Responsibility on Wednesday, Jan. 31, from noon to 1 p.m. in the AMU Lunda Room.

The Arrupe Center for Community Service and Social Responsibility offers semester and year-long programs, including the 414 Fellows Program and Marquette Volunteer Corps, as well as one-day service opportunities. 

The Arrupe Center’s student program assistants will share information about these programs and reflect on how their community engagement has impacted their Marquette experience.

Jess Verdejo, director of the Arrupe Center, will be available to answer any questions faculty have about service learning. Vevette Hill-Nwagbaraocha, assistant director of Campus Ministry, will also share information about spring break service opportunities with the Marquette Action Program. 

A light lunch of soup and bread will be provided. No RSVP is required.

Inspired by the “roundtable discussions” of Peter Maurin and the Catholic Worker Movement, Soup with Substance is a noontime presentation on an issue related to social justice over a simple meal of soup and bread. Each academic year Campus Ministry hosts nearly thirty Soup with Substance programs.
