Community Service

Want to make a difference in your community? Need service credit for class, a leadership certificate, or scholarship requirements? Would you like more work experience for your resume? 

A TimeBank through Reed Executive Study suggests that employers prefer job candidates who volunteer. The Office of Student Affairs strives to provide on- and off-campus programming that engages you in a variety of community outreach opportunities, both serving the university as well as serving nonprofit organizations in the greater Columbus area.

Students can gain valuable professional experience, both in short- and long-term volunteer positions, such as:
  • Graphic design
  • Social service outreach
  • Literacy tutoring
  • Nonprofit office administration

Students and groups of students are also encouraged to participate in projects, like:

  • Adopt-a-Road
  • Office painting
  • Assemble fundraising mailers
  • Packing gifts for holiday charities
