Student Engagement engages in community service partnerships to support students' lifelong commitment to community service and active citizenship for positive social change.
We believe that community service and active citizenship opportunities help students become informed, responsible citizens. We support student volunteers by identifying opportunities, facilitating placement with service opportunities and recognizing participation in community service. For information about service-learning opportunities related to an academic course, please refer to Career Development & Community Engagement. We strive to be resources that can help match the issues our students are passionate about the organizations or agencies that are addressing those specific issues.
As a result of participation in community service opportunities, students will be able to:
- Reflect on community service as a component of responsible citizenship.
- Describe and analyze the social issues relevant to the community organization or agency in which they serve.
- Engage in meaningful and repetitive action in local communities.
In Spring 2014, Student Involvement completed a Council for Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) Program Review. We welcome you to view the Leadership and Service CAS Review Final Report.
