Education in Action

St. John’s Staten Island campus students don’t get lost in the crowd or sit back and watch.  On the smaller campus, students gain the confidence and support they need to take their St. John’s education to the next level.  A St. John’s Staten Island campus education grows leaders who serve others, backed by professors and administrators who care about them.   

St. John’s students take the initiative on the Staten Island campus.  The Office of Student Life and Student Success Center are home to a vibrant student government and network of organizations that give students the responsibility to shape their campus and learning experience.  With faculty and administrator support, they also create new clubs and programs that can point the university in exciting new directions.  Just check out our student-made Instagram feed!  Students on the Staten Island campus turn ideas into reality, in the best spirit of St. John’s Vincentian Mission.

On campus and in the community, Catholic Scholars and members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society are ambassadors for St. John’s Vincentian Mission and its connection to the Diocese of New York.  Ozanam Scholars, guided by faculty and administrators of the Vincentian Institute for Social Action (VISA), pursue advanced undergraduate research in social justice that make a real difference to the community organizations they serve.

Classrooms are catalysts and springboards for students on St. John’s Staten Island campus.  The Academic Service Learning program of the Vincentian Institute for Social Action (VISA) assists faculty develop community partnerships and off-campus academic service learning projects that takes students’ learning beyond the classroom into the real world.  Thanks to St. John’s extensive network of alumni and civic engagement initiatives throughout Staten Island, students present their work to decision makers and future employers. 

St. John’s students combine engaged learning, campus leadership, and Vincentian service to bring out their best.  Put your education into action on the Staten Island campus.
