Office for the Common Good

Reflected in their name, The Sisters of the Holy Cross, have always had a deep commitment to Place. After all, they are named - not for the cross - but for the small village in France where they were founded. As such in the spirit of the Sisters, our office is dedicated to engaging with our place: the campus and the community that surrounds Saint Mary’s College.


Grounded in its commitment, the Office for the Common Good offers programs and opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to encounter all that the South Bend region through SERVICE, ADVOCACY, and SUSTAINABILITY.


Office for the Common Good engages the Saint Mary’s community through these ongoing opportunities:
