Like Vincent who moved beyond his original base to make a
concrete difference in the world, St. John’s sends students out
beyond its borders to learn how to live, serve and become socially
responsible leaders who are solution-oriented and focused on
eradicating the causes of poverty and social injustice.
“Vincent’s commitment to look beyond his borders to
stimulate growth and positive change inspires St. John’s goal of
preparing future leaders by exposing them to the challenges and
opportunities of other geographic and cultural regions. In this
way, they are better able to understand the world around them.
Through this kind of experiential learning, students also begin to
understand how to identify pragmatic solutions for critical issues
in the arenas of poverty and social injustice.”
