While overseeing the many great CSA programs, Megan particularly facilitates the Service and Faith Learning Community, post-graduate volunteer discernment, and Loyola's delegation to the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. Megan received an M.A. and an M.S.W. from Boston College, with a focus on social justice, community organizing and policy. She holds a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame. Her own career path involved 3 terms as an AmeriCorps volunteer, where she came to appreciate the power of campuses and local communities uniting to make change. She was born and raised in South Carolina and wishes that her 8 nieces and nephews lived a little closer to Chicago.
