Dayton Students Do Social Analysis, Theological Reflection

Our students learn and serve in our local community and reflect on Midwest urban social issues. Every Fall Break at the University of Dayton, fifty to sixty of our students spend four days learning about and serving in the city of Dayton. We meet our community neighbors and learn about the assets in Dayton (such as arts/cultural, parks, athletics, neighborhoods, and social services) and how, with students' help, those assets are helping solve the city's typical Midwest urban problems. Dayton's civic leaders come in the evenings to speak to the students, which provides rich opportunities for the students to engage in social analysis and theological reflection.
