Arrupe International Immersion Program
Arrupe International is one of Boston College’s hallmark service-immersion programs.
The program – named for the late Jesuit Pedro Arrupe, S.J. – creates a culture of encounter, introducing students to the Gospel’s call of living in solidarity with the suffering world. Our trips travel to countries in Central and South America and the Caribbean, inviting students to learn about the complex realities of the countries we visit by hearing the stories of those who host us in their own words.
Through developing a sense of compassion and responsibility for the greater world, and by providing space to reflect on one’s experiences, the Arrupe program allows participants to translate their learning into action. We do this in the spirit of Fr. Arrupe, who pioneered the combination of service, faith, and justice, and believed that such personal experiences were key to catalyzing structural changes in the world that could work to alleviate oppression, violence, and other realities facing those in need.
