UServe

UServe is a civic engagement program coordinated by the Office of Student Engagement and the Mitchell-West Center for Social Inclusion. It is an interactive program that incorporates education, training, hands-on service, and reflection to connect students with the social challenges of today. Each month is focused on a different issue. 

UServe Advocates are campus leaders at the forefront of creating change in our community. Advocates have the opportunity to choose the social topics for our UServe months and help organize the details to build thought-provoking and engaging programs. You can lead the way of community service. Apply to be a UServe Advocate!
