Vincentian Center Mission

Printer-friendly versionSend to friendPDF version

The Vincentian Center for Church and Society serves as a clearinghouse for and developer of Vincentian information, poverty research, social justice resources, and as an academic/cultural programming Center. It sponsors the Vincentian Chair of Social Justice, the Institute on Poverty Studies, and Religion and Science Dialogue. While many of its activities relate the University to local communities and the Church of Metropolitan New York, the Center also supports specialized projects linking it nationally and globally.

Food for Thought

Catholic universities will be particularly attentive to the poorest and to those who suffer economic, social, cultural or religious injustice. This responsibility begins within the academic community but it also finds application beyond it.
