    Our mission is to use service and reflection to investigate questions of justice and community. These programs are designed to provide students with an opportunity to lead, learn and serve throughout the year.  Each program is led and coordinated by student leaders and the Coordinator of Social Justice Initiative and the Hamline to Hamline Collaboration, Margot Howard.
