Whether helping to rebuild storm-damaged homes in the Midwest, teaching English in Cameroon or mentoring children in Carlisle, Dickinsonians engage the world as they learn about it.
Students provide more than 39,000 hours of community service each year through service-learning programs, course-related projects and extra-curricular programs. Partnering with local organizations such as Project S.H.A.R.E., the YMCA and Habitat for Humanity, the college offers many opportunities to become an engaged citizen long before graduation.
The Center for Service, Spirituality and Social Justice works to increase engaged citizenship, sustainable community partnerships and responsibility by helping students, community members, faculty and staff build connections, explore the complexity of identity and values and identify community needs.
This network of student groups reaches into the local community through nearly a dozen community-service programs. Students can help provide services in a wide range of areas, from artistic-enrichment programs to community tutoring to environmental protection.
