International Relations Club
The International Relations Club is open to students of all majors and sponsors activities that develop a greater understanding of international relations. The club sponsors speakers and debates, and selects a team for the annual National Model United Nations simulation in New York City. Participation in such a simulation provides members with great hands-on experience in both communications and constructing resolutions for the world’s social, economic and political conflicts. The club offers students the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Since its inception, Ignatian House has served as a medium for carrying out the ideals of Christian social action. The house is a community with the members working, studying and sharing their experiences together.
In focusing attention on the needs of the inner city, the members have developed a wide range of programs involving work with the aged, the homeless and the underprivileged. In an effort to bring important social issues to the Le Moyne community, Ignatian House sponsors a series of speakers, films, informational events and student-faculty dinners throughout the year. Liturgies are held to celebrate the unity in Christ necessary for true Christian social action. During the between-semester vacation, members travel to Appalachia and inner-city Philadelphia to serve those living in poverty.
Amnesty International is a nonpolitical organization dedicated to the work of advocacy on behalf of prisoners of conscience. Amnesty International promotes campus networks so that dur-ing the academic year students can participate in the organization’s work. The purpose of the campus network at Le Moyne is twofold: to help in the work that the organization carries out and to allow students to learn about the world situation regarding prisoners of conscience.
