Helping to Shape Today's Ethical Leaders

Gifts from donors make it possible for students like Diana Figueroa ’16 to live, work, and reflect in economically marginalized communities from South America to Appalachia, through USF’s Arrupe Immersion Programs.

“I cherish my trip,” says Diana, who traveled to El Salvador. "Coming back, I started to notice more about what we have here, and make changes in myself, little by little. You have to change yourself first, in order to change the world."

That kind of outcome drives supporters like Stephen Pelleriti ’71. Their gifts make the journey possible for more than half of the Arrupe participants. “I want them to have an experience that would allow them to rethink what their role in the world is,” Pelleriti says. “If even one person is impacted, that’s tremendously gratifying.”
