Community Service

"I've learned how much richer your life becomes when you step outside the college bubble and incorporate people from different walks of life into yours."
- Veronica

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, 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. The CSO works with the Jandon Center for Community Engagement on these initiatives.
