The PULSE program's mission "is to educate our students about social injustice by putting them into direct contact with marginalized populations and social change organizations and by encouraging discussion on classic and contemporary works of philosophy and theology."

The McGillycuddy-Logue Center for Undergraduate Global Studies Fellows Program

This program provides a unique opportunity for Boston College students to critically engage with concepts of community service and social justice during their time at BC. Through international service experiences paired with group reflection and coursework, students gain a more informed vision of their role in the world, both locally and globally.
