Faith and Service
Working Toward Social Justice
A major academic focus at Babson is in creating both economic and social value throughout the world. Profits are great, but so are people and the planet; an effective entrepreneurial leader will be committed to all three. At Babson, making a positive social impact on the world infuses every aspect of student life. Through local and global service learning programs and civic engagement, on-campus initiatives, and numerous community volunteer opportunities, Babson students begin making a difference virtually from day one, looking at global social justice issues and seeking innovation within a multicultural and multifaith community.
Serving Babson students, staff, and alumni, the Bernon Center for Public Service at Babson coordinates one-time and ongoing volunteer and community service activities with local and national community service agencies. Last year, the Babson community performed more than 27,000 hours of service.
The Glavin Family Chapel is a sanctuary for Babson community members to practice their religious faith, seek inspiration and guidance, and find peace in the quiet of a sacred place. The chapel welcomes people of all faiths, cultures, and traditions, offering faith-based programs both on a weekly basis and as special events.
