Community Service

The Office of Student Civic Engagement (OSCE) engages students in a variety of volunteer opportunities on and off campus. One-time and ongoing projects are available.

Community Service Opportunities
The OSCE serves as a drop-in center where students can learn about volunteer opportunities and find help in planning service projects in which they are interested. Volunteer opportunities are publicized via the online calendar, electronic billboards, information fairs, e-mail blasts, newsletters and flyers. Sample projects include:
  •  Blood Drives
  • Mentoring/tutoring at-risk kids
  • Fundraising for a cause
  • Home building/repairs for low income families
  • Food and clothing drives
  • Packing relief supplies
  •  Nursing home visits
  • Planting flowers with the parks conservancy
  • Recreational activities with children/youth
  • Serving meals at homeless shelters
  • Hiking trail clean-up

The OSCE is a resource for student organizations on campus that want to create and engage in volunteer projects. Have you thought about volunteering, but don’t know where to begin? Stop by the OSCE and discuss the many opportunities for your organization to make a positive impact in the community.
