Arrupe International Immersion Program

Campus Ministry


Boston College Campus Ministry’s Arrupe International Immersion Program empowers participating undergrad students, primarily through undergrad “Student Leaders” and post-undergrad “Mentors,” to build intentional life- and faith-sharing communities. Together with their mentors, undergrad students learn about the complex reality, from a historical, social, economic, political and religious perspective, of people from another country who
struggle in poverty.

The program is named in honor of Fr. Pedro Arrupe, a past Superior General of the Society of Jesus, a.k.a. the Jesuit, the Catholic religious order which founded Boston College, and whose charism and vision animate the University. Fr. Arrupe believed that living the gospel requires effective solidarity with a suffering world. He was a pioneer in urging the combination of pastoral concern, biblical reflection and social analysis.
