How to Best Serve Your Community

The Center for Community Engagement encourages meaningful service opportunities that can truly make a difference for our community partners.

  • Support just one organization. Be available when they request volunteers.
  • Get hours through continuous volunteering. Be consistent!
  • Do service in small groups of 5 or less.
  • Commit to showing up and honor your commitment.
  • A Service Consultation will allow our office staff to learn more about what type of service activity you're looking for and match you with community partners on and off-campus.
  • Remember that you can always find current volunteer opportunities on CCE social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
