“Forming responsible leaders in service to others who respond to the demands of justice in solidarity with the entire human family.”
The Albert S. Foley, S.J. Center was founded in the fall of 1992 by the President of Spring Hill College to honor the life of Father Albert S. Foley, S.J., a champion of civil and human rights. The Albert S. Foley Community Service Center, S.J. was charged to further the college mission to form leaders engaged in learning, faith, justice, and service for life.
The Foley Center serves this mission goal each year through the involvement of over 500 students in weekly direct service (40% of Spring Hill students), a dozen faculty who utilize service learning in their courses, and over 50 community partners. Each year the students perform roughly 25,000 hours of service, an estimated $600,000 of value added to the community each year. In addition, dozens of students, faculty, and staff collaborate with the Foley Center on special initiatives throughout the year.
