"CSO really allowed me to take this, not only as a volunteering experience, but a learning experience." Emily '16
The Community Service Office (CSO) is a comprehensive community service program. Our philosophy centers on encouraging students to engage in a wide range of community service work to gain insight into the complex social problems that face our communities. We provide students with opportunities to engage in: regular long and short-term community placements, non-profit administrative training, and specialized leadership programs, in a collaborative model that is community driven, ethically informed, and reflectively adaptive.
Opportunities to engage:
- First Link Orientation Program
- Short-term placements
- Long-term placements
- Leadership positions
- Educational workshops
- Reflective discussions
"I was able to work with organizations and also with other Smith students who had the same passion as me to organize community service events and recruit other Smith students."
