Building Community Through Service

When you're a Spartan, you're part of something bigger than campus' 5,200 acres. We're a global community more than 500,000 strong and we're passionate about making the world a better place. Spartans Serve is a year-round initiative designed to show the world the impact Spartans make through community service.

Why Volunteer?

Making a difference is what Spartans do. 

Our proud tradition of service starts with the thousands of students who give back annually as part of the Center for Community Engaged Learning, registered student organizations, their academic units and our Spartan Days of Service. After graduation, alumni are inspired to serve through our alumni clubs, their employers or for personal causes they care about. 

The world needs Spartans to help solve problems in communities big and small.
