Your St. John’s experience extends beyond the four walls of your classrooms, and even beyond our home base in New York City. You can study abroad on our Rome campus, at our locations in Paris, France, or Limerick, Ireland, or in dozens of other countries.

The Writing Across Communities program provides support for faculty teaching with writing across the disciplines in all colleges. The centerpiece of our program is the Summer Writing Institute, a two-week retreat where faculty workshop both their writing projects and their planned curricular projects. Throughout the year, the Director of Writing Across the Curriculum, Anne Ellen Geller, consults one-on-one with faculty members who want to revise writing assignments, reconsider how they offer students written feedback, or rethink a course’s writing expectation. The program also hosts lunches, workshops, and informal conversations with colleagues for faculty interested in talking about their students' writing, as well as their own writing.

The Office of University Mission offers all full-time employees at St. John's University the opportunity to participate in the 16-month Vincentian Mission Certificate (VMC) professional development program. With its focus on Education, Service and Reflection, the VMC program is designed to empower St. John’s administrators, faculty and staff to live the Vincentian Mission as Mission Leaders. Previous cohorts of the program have already proven vital to instilling a sense of Vincentian service and leadership throughout the University community, bridging the gap between a theoretical understanding of our Catholic and Vincentian mission and its practical application in today’s society.
