The Community Service Office (CSO) is a comprehensive community service program that both supports and informs the Smith College community by working to engage Smith students in a wide range of community service and social action projects, workshops and placements.

Our mission is to support student engagement in meaningful community service work and leadership training that enhances the educational experience, meets community identified needs, provides opportunities for reflection and models the development of effective collaborative community partnerships with local nonprofit organizations and encourages a lifelong commitment to community engagement.

Our philosophy, which focuses on community service and social action, centers around: building bridges among diverse groups of people and encouraging learning through community work.
