Campuses are the natural communities for college students, and if we are asked to be neighbors, it is on campus where students are most directly called to bring a spirit of care and trust. Campus expressions emerge from the call on students to be good neighbors to their peers, and exist to give an environment where the distinctive culture of a college campus can intersect with motivated and genuine faith.
Campus expressions aim to create an atmosphere of discovery and trust, where students coming from any background can ask and openly wrestle with their questions about faith and life. They also find ways to connect with the greater local community, so that students have a chance to serve others outside of their immediate surroundings. These connections grow out of the intention to build long-term partnerships with communities around the city, so that rooted relationships can emerge over time.
Campus expressions are communities of students on college campuses who support one another, who work together to serve their community, and who grow together in an atmosphere of acceptance and trust.
We’ve got 4 campus expressions in Boston as of right now.
