Community Engagement

As graduate students, you have a unique perspective on life. You have an opportunity to give that perspective back to others. Our Community Engagement programs seek to get graduate student outside of their regular comfort zone. This may be through engagement in cultural based experiences, or in acting within the community through activism and service. We think you might enjoy participating in some of the community service activities listed on the Center for Service and Leadership website. Also, be sure to check out volunteer opportunities, community engagement experiences, as well as other key initiatives right here on our website from time to time.
