Spotlight on Service

The time you spend in a student organization, as a community volunteer or working on the job can help you build skills and serve others. The Leadership and Service Center is a free, on-campus resource that can help you build your leadership skills, impact your community and expand your education beyond the classroom. Opportunities include:

  • Volunteering Connect your skills with those who need them most.
  • Service Leadership If you're ready to take your community volunteerism to a higher level, consider becoming a service leader.
  • Service-Learning In service-learning, your education is connected to meaningful, hands-on community service.
  • Civic Engagement Access a range of nonpartisan programs and services that can help you learn about key electoral issues and help you cast your ballot during elections.
  • Service Days and Weeks Promote awareness and complete service events as part of several national weeks of recognition around specific issues.
