In all we do, seek to advance the common good.

At the Center for the Common Good, we connect University of St. Thomas students, faculty, and staff with community engagement opportunities so we can understand today’s most pressing social challenges, build mutually-beneficial relationships, and work toward innovative solutions—all for the common good.

When we put our efforts together, we gain a deeper understanding of complex issues, create stronger communities, and become inspired to take action.
