Volunteer Opportunities

The Office of Community-Based Learning and Research is available to help students identify which organizations would work best for the student’s interests and schedule, and provide resources for the student to engage in service.

Sign up to be added to our CBLR monthly newsletter, which posts short-and long-term volunteer opportunities, events, internships and other news related to community engagement.  If you are looking for an on-going service opportunity, you can browse through the list of community organizations.
