Volunteer Programs provides opportunities for community engagement and leadership development. Through mutually beneficial campus and community partnerships, students explore social issues by engaging in direct service, reflection, and critical dialogue. We aspire to be a resource that encourages and empowers the campus community to become global leaders.
NOTE: In an abundance of caution, many of the direct community service projects are on hold for the 2021-2022 academic year - please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

To engage college students in meaningful service to build leadership and civic responsibility
To promote academic success and economic well-being with students from diverse backgrounds
