Faith and Justice Fellows

The Center on Faith and Justice Fellow Program is rooted in our commitment to deepening the moral and spiritual dimensions of civic life, and in our conviction that meaningful political engagement, social and ecological justice, and healthy interior lives are intertwined. To that end, the program will involve personal formation that grounds students spiritually, while offering opportunities to engage in political advocacy, civic action, and community building. 


The Faith and Justice Student Fellows Program hires two to three undergraduate and/or graduate students each semester to help the CFJ develop educational programming and advocacy campaigns related to a particular theme. The Fall 2024 theme is Ecojustice and Democracy. Students will engage in advocacy campaigns, event planning, research, and drafting articles related to these themes, in collaboration with CFJ staff. 

Students also will generate a capstone project related to their individual areas of interest, which might include a wide variety of majors and career aims. The project will highlight the interconnection between spirituality, ecojustice, civic engagement, and public service. 

Additionally, students will engage in weekly communal practices of spiritual formation. Possibilities include book studies, contemplative practice, embodied action for ecojustice and belonging, and reflection and discussion related to ecology and spirituality. Students from any or no faith tradition are welcome.
