Suffolk's Center for Community Engagement (S.O.U.L.S.) was founded in 1997 to engage the Suffolk University community in meaningful service work.

Our mission is to cultivate and inspire a community that is committed to social justice. The key elements needed to accomplish this mission are:

  • service
  • education
  • reflection
  • advocacy

We develop partnerships and programs that:

  • integrate practical experience in the community with classroom learning
  • help students gain a deeper, hands-on understanding of social justice issues
  • support students’ advocacy for social change
  • help students establish an ethic of service, achieve personal growth, and develop their leadership skills
  • express and promote the value and acceptance of diversity in our communities
