Volunteering: Developing the knowledge, skills, and values for civic and career readiness!

The Office of Student Life, in partnership with student organizations across campus, provides opportunities for students to engage in their local communities. Through mutually beneficial volunteer projects, students are immersed in impactful direct service with members of the surrounding community. 

Volunteering is a two way street -- we are serving and learning simultaneously. Through volunteer projects, not only are we able to address an immediate community need, but we are able to learn about important social issues, how they affect those around us, and how we can more deeply work toward long-term change.
